Activists criticize gender bias
- Ryan Dagur, Jakarta
- April 5, 2012
Judges of this yearâ€™s season include three popular singers and songwriter.
â€śTheir comments contain gender bias,â€ť Hartoyo, a representative of the Alliance of People Caring for Television Programs in Indonesia, said at a meeting of the Indonesian Broadcasting Commission (IBC) in Jakarta yesterday.
He said the judges had humiliated contestants, which was â€śobviously against the IBCâ€™s policies and human rights law.â€ť
Responding to the activistsâ€™ criticism, Idy Muzayyad from the IBC promised to remind the channel and encouraged people to monitor programs so as to ensure their quality.
Indonesian Idol began airing on the RCTI channel in 2004 and has become one of the most popular shows in the country.
