This research is motivated by the issue of women that is reproduced and revised continuously up to this day. This thing can be seen is seen in literary works. In this case, the author of Javanese literature, namely Tiwiek S.A, also consistently discussed the issue of women in each of her literary works. One of the issue of women in her work is the concept construction of Javanese women's beauty. Women's beauty is always constructed with an ideal body shape where the ideals have been formed by the community for a long time. Therefore, it makes women depressed with the fetter of beauty concept. This research tries to dismantle how the concept of beauty is constructed in novels by Tiwiek S.A and to find out if there any importance behind the presence of beauty myths in novels by Tiwiek S.A. In order to answer that problem, Naomi Wolf's Beauty Myth Theory which is then supported by the theory of gender feminism is used as a knife for analysis in this study.
