Intercity integration in a metropolitan area forms a unified city that is interconnected like a mutualism symbiosis. Metropolitan areas provide opportunities for people between regions or between cities to connect with each other by doing non-permanent mobility. The purpose of this study is to identify how much potentially women are trapped spatially than men in some metropolitan areas in Indonesia. Spatial entrapment is a condition that is more common in women who trip in shorter distance and times during commuting between place of residence and place of work. This study uses micro data from the 2018 national labor force survey (SAKERNAS), which the survey was conducted by Indonesian Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS). The research approach is quantitative by using descriptive analysis to see the relationship between the independent variable and the dependent variable through bivariate cross tabulation analysis and graphics. Then, inferential analysis is used to determine the effect of independent variables on dependent variables inferentially. The inferential analysis model used in this study is multinomial logistics regression. The results show variables that influence the spatial entrapment of women workers are wage, work statues, and mode of transportation.
