One of them is the issue of linking gender equality with the good state administration, a concept that was later labeled good governance. This progress has been driven, among other things, by the success of development activities that put women "in the middle". This background has moved the World Bank to conduct specific research that will link the quality of good governance with development where gender is placed at the core. The results of the World Bank research in 2000 related to gender can conclude that countries that have a high degree of gender equality, Relatives have a high level of progress in life or prosperity. Based on the phenomenon above, the research problem can be formulated as follows: What is the perception of female ASN in administrator positions (echelon III) towards JPTP structural positions (echelon II)? and What factors are behind the perception of female ASN administrator positions (echelon III) towards JPTP structural positions (echelon II)? The theory used in this research is the theory of perception, understanding of gender, and relevant social theories. And there are several concepts, namely the concept of assessment and competence, the phenomenological approach, the concept of local government, and the concept of structural positions. This research is descriptive qualitative, where qualitative research methods are research methods used to examine the condition of natural objects, researchers are the key instrument, the technique of collecting data is triangulation (combined), data analysis is inductive and the results of qualitative research emphasize meaning rather than generalization. This research can produce 15 findings and several minor propositions so that the major propositions can be formulated as follows: Fear and insecurity overshadows the perception of female ASN to be involved in the kingdom of government officials as a modern organization where there is a mix of professional and political authority in making decisions, especially services public because the power of officials determines all matters related to their position.
