In general, this study examines the impact of the presence of fisherwoman on women's development specifically and human development in Indonesia. Paradigmatically, this study relies on the Sotirios Sarantakos category called the critical paradigm with sociolegal or non-doctrinal research. The findings of this study state that fisherwoman have important roles and contributions both in the production and non-production cycles of fisheries and development.
