The method implemented was through Community Education namely educational activities used to elevate the perceptive and awareness of the community, especially political awareness for women. The conclusion of this outreach program was that the participants had limited understanding and awareness for the role and position of women in the family and in society (the state). The participants did not understand and were not aware of the political role it assumes as a kholifah on earth. In addition, the participants did not understand the procedures and mechanisms to become a representative of the people as members of the legislative council either. Therefore, the participants were very enthusiastic and asked many questions about how the religion viewed women who are actively involved in politics, how to balance family obligations with their social-political role, how to start engaging the political world if their husbands did not allow them, and the participants also asked how should be a capable and qualified board member.
