In modern terms we would call her a first wave feminist.
Her two great women's rights achievements were to insist on modernising marriage practises with respect to her own marriage and to establish the first ever high school for girls in Java. She is also regarded as a pioneer of establishing a national identity for Indonesia.
There is an Indonesian national holiday named her on April 21. It would be great to publish a micromovie or micromovies at that time, but paying tribute to Kartini is something I consider worth doing at any other time.
An essential requirement an actress needs for this role is hair long enough to be tied up in a big round bun at the back.
After this the questions I ask anyone interested are: how would you like to pay tribute to Kartini? What do you admire about her? The time limit is two minutes. (preferably one). If I ask you to audition in person, that audition will be paid for (probably only one hour)
Indonesian language skills will be helpful but are far from essential.
I do have a plan for a filmed tree planting to honour Kartini and this may be something an actress could be paid to participate in.
