Micro- small- medium-scale industries (MSMsI) based on the “Putting-out” System (POS) with home-workers (HWs) has long existed in Indonesia, but it now shows significant and prominent growth that is complex and different from POS in general. The POS works through decentralisation of production, where the largest part of the production processes are taken out from factory to the HWs and their families. This is a strategy of MSMsI to enhance efficiency and competitiveness. At the same time, these strategies marginalise the HWs and make them “invisible”. This fact is a reflection of the dialectic of capitalist and patriarchal values as a power that are supported by the state policy. To reveal the “invisibility” of POS- and HW-based MSMsI, a feminist research paradigm with gender analysis is used in this study. The research method used is a case study from a gender perspective. This paper describes (1) Reviews of methodology to analyze the MSMsI’s phenomenon based POS and HW, (2) gender perspective research methodology in POS context, and (3) the application of research methodology from gender perspective in MSMsI of batik based on POS and HW. This method provides basic ontological, epistemological, and axiology in uncovering the “invisible” MSMsI which is still experiencing gender inequality.
