This article discusses about thematic analysis of interfaith women leadership in universities in Indonesia. The problems that have arisen in Indonesia related to women's leadership are the existence of a patriarchal culture, stereotypes, inferiority, gender bias considering women less capable of leading. Consequently, it has resulted in a minimum number of female rectors in both public and private universities. In fact, women's leadership hinges on transformational leadership (feminine leadership style) which includes female value as the most effective leadership style. Likewise, from a religious perspective, women leadership, for example in the concepts of Islamic and Christian religions encourage women for careers in the public sphere as shown in Koran Surah At-Taubah/9: 72, Al-Nahl/16: 97, and in the Bible, the Book of Genesis (Genesis 1: 26-31). Nowadays, there have been many changes for women, even in the context of culture, social, economy, education, etc. Ironically, with all these developments, women are still assumed as incompetent. Therefore, women must be independent and courageous, have the skills to be able to compete well in various sectors, especially in leading a university. Therefore, it is crucial for women in Indonesia to have strong analytical skills, communication skills, courage, listening skills, and assertiveness so that they are able to implement management functions properly. Besides, it is recommended that in terms of government policy and reconstructing the negative stigma against women are urgent to provide more opportunities for women to lead administratively.
