Hatini's story is part of a peer-reviewed edited volume of women's life stories that draws on detailed ethnographic research of village women's lived experiences and how they, individually and collectively, have taken action to influence village development in Indonesia's multi-level governance structure under the new Village Law in Indonesia. The analysis identifies the processes of women's empowerment, their involvement in grassroots women's collective action, engagement with civil society organisations, and how women influence village institutions, policies, development spending and priorities, and new projects as well as social norms in communities. Hatini is an 'Aisyiyah cadre from a village in Cirebon district, West Java. Hatini carries out all her activities as a cadre with tenacity and has developed her individual leadership skills and self-belief. As a reproductive health cadre, Hatini has gained new knowledge, experiences of organising and developed her public speaking skills. Apart from new information about women's reproductive health, she has also gained experience in how to recruit new cadres to the women's group Balai Sakinah 'Aisyiyah. At the end of 2018, Hatini had the opportunity to manage 'Aisyiyah's Nutrition Garden, set up for growing vegetables as a livelihood activity for women in rural areas. Hatini has drawn on the leadership skills she gained from 'Aisyiyah cadre training to manage the division of tasks and the harvest. Hatini has become a go-between, relaying health information from 'Aisyiyah's district leaders to the community and reporting on community needs, such as issues about processing vital identity documents.
