Abstract

This study aimed to reveal the form of violence against women by men in Kompas selected short stories published in reformation era, particularly related to patriarchal culture. This study applied qualitative methods and feminist literary approaches. The short stories analyzed were ‘Liang’ by Indra Tranggono (2004), ‘Dua Wanita Cantik’ by Jujur Prananto (2004), ‘Ripin’ by Ugoran Prasad (2005), ‘Suatu hari, Ada Ibu and Radian’ (2009), and ‘Sonya Rury’ by Indra Tranggono (2010). The research findings proved that female characters are victims of violence by men both as husbands and lovers. Forms of violence consist of direct violence and indirect violence. The violence occurs mainly caused by the presence of patriarchal issues and economic factors. The violence affects the destruction of future life as happens to Ripin whose the life was miserable, Wasti who raised four children without knowing who the father of each child wss, Radian’s mother character who managed to escape along with Radian for killing Radian's father, Sonya who ended his life, and Meta who was going to experience her mother’s fate, becoming a widow without getting married.
