Abstract

In this thesis, the writer focused her analysis on resistance against patriarchal values in Meg Cabot’s The Princess Diaries. The purposes of this study are to show that the influence of patriarchy is still firmly entrenched in society, especially in female adolescents’ environment in United States, and also to show its influence in the life and character formation of youth in general. In addition, the writer also wanted to show the other forms of resistance that can be done to fight patriarchy. In the end, the writer wanted to emphasize the importance of confidence and self respect so that every woman can realize that she can be a "princess" in her own way and version and has the right to determine the direction of her own life. In conducting analysis, the writer used method of library research (library research). The approach that the writer used is feminism approach. Intrinsic aspects that are discussed in analysis are intrinsic elements in the novel that include settings, characters, plot, and conflict; while the aspect of feminism that is discussed is the resistance against patriarchal values. Based on the analysis, the writer found that the values of patriarchy have already been firmly entrenched. The influence of patriarchy is not only found in certain societies. It has been thoroughly entrenched, even among today's generation, especially female adolescents. In addition, the writer also successfully found forms of resistance against patriarchal values that is executed by protagonist. Resistance of the protagonist in the novel itself is done in stages because the protagonist (Mia Thermopolis) initially was not aware of her existence. After her existential awareness has been fully reached, Mia dared to fight frontally.
