This research aims to examine the identity of Indonesian Women through the contestation of discourses which is presented by fashion style in contemporary travel writing. The rise of globalization has proved the domination of some discourses which had posed Indonesian women in the second position begun to collapse. However, in another side showed a phenomenon that supports patriarchy to exist. Those presented the way Indonesian women writer choose their style in travel and writing. This exploration provides how jilbab and naked represented ideologies which construct Indonesian woman’s identity in travel stories. Using the Foucauldian analysis approach gives us a possibility to exclude subject, object and meaning, and to find a comprehensive construction of images. The findings of this research show that Indonesian women have stuck in an ambiguous position which seems to try an independent individual subject, while at the same time patriarchy ideology still rearticulated.
