Having a good mathematical literacy is expected to help the students in learning. Mathematical literacy is an individual’s ability to understand the role of mathematics and to interpret it in his everyday life. Mathematical literacy focuses on thinking mathematically, mathematical arguments, mathematical modelling, open problems and solving problems, representation, and communication. This study aims to describe the ability of students’ mathematical literacy viewed from the gender difference. Type of research this is research is qualitative descriptive. The subject of this study were two female students and the two male students. Instruments used in this study is an ability test of mathematical literacy and interview. Data were analyzed with the descriptive qualitative analysis namely the data reduction, data modelling, and conclusion drawing. Male students’ mathematical literacy skill was signified by the indicators on mathematical thinking, mathematical arguments, representation and communication. While female students’ mathematical literacy skill was signified by the indicators on mathematical thinking, mathematical arguments, open problem and solving problems, and representation and communication. Except for mathematical modelling indicator female students possess adequate mathematical literacy skill.
