    Raden Adjeng Kartini, an activist who fought for women's rights in Indonesia more than 100 years ago, is being honoured in a new film.

    Kartini started to fight for women's education at a time when it was rare for Indonesian girls to go to school.

    But many are wondering what has become of her struggle in modern Indonesia.
