Chapter one analyzes the Cold War-inspired massacres of up to one million accused communists in Indonesia in 1965-67 during the rise of president Suharto’s “New Order” regime. Further, it explains and questions the regime’s particular targeting of female dancers, artists, and members of Gerwani, a progressive, proto-feminist women’s organization.
