This paper aims to explain the relationship between family formation and family responsibilities with the career rhythms of female lecturers. The sampling technique is cluster sampling, followed by the stratified random sampling technique. This study selected a sample of Diponegoro University. The sample size calculation uses the Krejcie and Morgan technique. The number of study respondents was 156 female lecturers. The results showed that family formation was related to career rhythms. The shorter the age of marriage, the more children they have, the lower the age of the first and last child, the slower the career rhythm. The relationship between family responsibility and career rhythm is negative, meaning that the higher the allocation of time, energy, and mind for the family, the lower the rhythm of his career. Most female lecturers work on their own various domestic activities. These activities include service to all family members, especially the preparation of food and work or school (for their children), maintenance of cleanliness and beauty of the house, and the provision of raw materials and consumption for all family members. Although institutional support is not gender discriminatory, female lecturers in developing careers with male lecturers do not equivalent. This shows that Undip female lecturers cannot take advantage of the various opportunities and opportunities available for career development. This is more due to the outpouring of energy, mind and attention to domestic activities (family) because children and families are more valuable than work for female lecturers. This is inseparable from the hegemony of patriarchal culture which is fertile and well-established in Indonesia in general and in Undip in particular.
Key words: career rhythms / female lecturers / family formation / family responsibilities / patriarchal culture
