Indonesia has the fourth population rank in the world, the women’s population is greater than man. The increasing number of women’s population, along the growth of women’s labors in Indonesia who are active in the economy, it can be seen from the increasing number of Women's Labor Force Participation Rates from year to year. This is driven by the existence of the gender equality principle which is one of the targets in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The increasing population who work, both men and women have a role in economy. This research aims to study the role of women labors in Indonesia's economic growth 2015-2018. We used 34 provinces data from the publication of the National Labor Force Survey, the variables are economic growth, man labor, women’s labor and the number of poor people. The results in this study using panel data regression showed there is no spilover between women labors and man labors. In addition, the growth of women labors in Indonesia is not statistically significant on economic growth. While the growth of man labors and the government expenditure has a significant positive effect on economic growth and the growth of the poor population has a significant negative impact on economic growth.
