Abstract :

This article takes a look back in the 2006 when the Indonesian House of Representatives proposes a bill against pornography and porn action. It further examines the contested position of female body in Indonesia in the light of globalization. The article particularly argues that female body has become a symbolic contested site of globalization and modernity. In the era of the very rapid changes it seemed Indonesian government was struck by moral panic due to modernization and globalization which obviously have brought about changes in the fabrication of the society. They are worried of the decreasing belief of the society in the tradition as argued to be manifested in the changing of bodily presentation. However, such perception is gendered as they emphasize on the presentation of female body
