Among the myths that exist in human life, tends to be associated with the role of women. Most are related to the role of women as objects of certain myths in certain traditions, such as: female circumcision, the concept of female sexuality in patriarchal culture, or their positions in certain fields of life. It can be seen on The Trilogy of the Golden Blood by Meliana K. Tansri which elevates the role of the dragon-blooded woman who is associated with the myth of a royal legend in the Jambi region.
