Despite the progress over the years, there are still many challenges to achieving basic
human  rights,  namely  “gender  equality”.  The  language  of  “gender  equality”  was
mobilized by feminists as a way to incorporate women's rights into the international
development agenda. Using bibliometric analysis of scientific journal articles taken from
the Scopus database, which totaled 504 journal articles, this study aims to document
evidence of research activities in 2012-2021 in the Scopus database, and visualize it using
VOSviewer and NVivo 12 plus software. The article reports on the publication and its
citation structure, key trends, and its growing push toward co-authoring. This study also
visualizes  the  most  prominent  topics  and  authors  in  the  form  of  a  network,  using
VOSviewer's bibliometric analysis and mapping of themes and their correlations using
NVivo 12 plus. The novelty of this research is the composition of limitations in the Scopus
database,  as  well  as  data  processing  using  VOSviewer  and  NVivo  12  plus  software.
Further research, it is necessary to enrich the composition of limitations in the Scopus
database, and compare it with the Web of Science database.
