Abstract

This study aims to explain the gender relationship through the use of the Pramoedya Ananta Toer’s Gadis Pantai (GP) novel diction. The novel describes the noble men (priyayi-Javanese) who wife (concubine) women from among ordinary people. Gender relations are described in terms of: leniency, authority, mobility, and attitude. The method of observation (simak) and the technique of note is selected as the means of data collection. Data are analyzed through stages: data reduction, data display, data verification, interpretation and theoretical meanings, and inferences of results. In the aspect of mobility, women from among ordinary people are not limited to such as slave, but as a slave of lust (husband). In the aspect of leniency, the diction used implies that a concubine does not dare to do anything out of the house without the blessing of her husband, even if only conveys her feelings. In the aspect of authority, a woman (concubine) has no power, even upon her. The use of diction in the attitude aspect, a concubine to be self-care, attention, mind to husband. Men’s oppression of women is a link between leniency, mobility, authority, and attitude that becomes intersection oppression.
