Abstract

This article aims at describing how women domination in domestic sphere is represented and exploited—whether to promote feminism or to sustain patriarchy in sitcom Suami-Suami Takut Istri”and what social dan political consequences of such representation have on womens image, mens image, and their relations. It is presented descriptive qualitatively applying textual approach and feminist cultural studies.

The way the women show domination is also constructed negatively, that is by engaging in all kinds of domestic violence. The análysis also shows that such negative construction results in negative image of women and gender relations, but maintains the positive image of men. Thus, in this way, patriarchy is sustained in sitcom Suami-Suami Takut Istri.
