There is a paradigm in our society that women are constrained with their backgrounds. It is undeniable that their backgrounds as marriage, raising children in family, and household duties have restricted women. However, over time a large number of women can prove that they are able to excel with those backgrounds. The purpose of this study is to know the influence of women’s backgrounds on achievement. In this study, the data were collected using a quantitative approach, which emphasizes a simple linear regression analysis. The respondents were female graduate students (master and doctorate degree) in one public university in Indonesia. The results of the research show that women’s backgrounds have influenced their achievement up to 13.8%. The students’ achievement in this study also opposes the dominance of stereotyped masculinity, which states that intellectual women are impossible.
