Abstract

The focus of this study is on the form and the motif of women rejection toward the product of patriarchy culture. Method of the research is descriptive-analysis by taking data sources from six selected Indonesian novels. The purpose of this study is to describe the form and the motif of women's rejection toward patriarchy culture that presented in Indonesian novel based on grand feminism theories. The result of the analysis shows that women in the novels reject five cultural products of patriarchal ideology. The five products are (1) pingitan, (2) restriction on employment, (3) shotgun marriage, (4) domestic and sexual violence and (5) polygamy. The act of rejection manifests in three forms: (1) the radical rejection, (2) compromised rejection, and (3) compromised rejection with political, economical and socio-cultural strategies. The rejection occurs because patriarchy still positioned the women under the domination of men as the controllers. Men are still positioned as panatapraja (country controller) and pranatama (religion controller). Second, the rejection motif of women characters toward patriarchy culture is because there is no ownership of rights for women for their body and soul, such as beauty, virginity, mate, and marriage which are always determined by men.
