Abstract

This paper is a feminist stylistic analysis of Triyanto Triwikromo’s short story “Tujuh Belas Agustus Tanpa Tahun”, which was chosen because of its social critiques to the people of Indonesia. I used feminist stylistics as the main theoretical framework, for feminist stylistics enables me to discover not only the interpretation of the texts, but also the gender bias hidden within it. While gender bias can actually be found in all elements of a narrative, in this paper I focus mainly on the characters of the story. The female character of the story Ibu is illustrated as weak, vulnerable, and powerless. Never in the story is she described in relation to her individual achievement, while the male characters are portrayed in a more positive way.
