The number of wigs and faked eyelashes factories in Purbalingga Regency that employing tens of thousands of female is an interesting subject to study from a gender perspective. For this reason, this study aims to examine the employment conditions in Purbalingga Regency in terms of business conditions, employment status, number of working hours and open unemployment rates. This research applies a descriptive quantitative approach by utilizing the 2017 Purbalingga Regency Gender Profile data which is supported by other related data. The data was then analyzed using a gender perspective. The results of the study show that many of Purbalingga residents, mostly females, work as laborers/workers/employees. Female workers dominate the processing industry business sector, while the male group is... more engaged in agriculture and the like. Female workers also work more in the formal private sector or as migrant workers. Meanwhile, the unemployment rate of male is much higher than female. This is due to more open employment opportunities for female along with the number of wigs and false eyelashes factories in this region that prefer female workers to male ones. With this condition it is recommended that the Government of Purbalingga Regency make a breakthrough in male-oriented work policies.
