Download This week the straddle ban for women in Indonesia’s Lhokseumawe city was officially launched.

Local authorities distributed a notice to government offices and villages informing residents about the proposed law that bans women from straddling motorbikes or holding on to the driver.

Lhokseumawe is located in Aceh, the only province in Indonesia that practices Shariah law alongside national law. The right to apply Sharia law was granted in 2002, as part of an autonomy agreement.

It’s not yet clear what the penalty for women straddling a motorbike will be, but under Shariah law, the punishment could include public caning.

As Citra Prastuti reports from Jakarta, the proposed law has created a public outcry.
