Abstract

This article aims to analyze the female author's ideology regarding the tragedy of war based on the author's personal experience as a female writer in the Arab world in the short story "Falnaltaqi" by Radwa Ahmed Eid. In addition, this article will also describe the intrinsic elements of the short story to understand the author's ideology in the short story. For this reason, the paper uses the gynocritic approach to see the author's ideology, because women as producers of texts as well as the role of conveying the meaning of texts. The primary source of data is the text of the short story "Falnaltaqi" written by Radwa Ahmed Eid, whereas supporting data such as literature and articles related to the topic of the paper are used to complete the data and interpretation of the short story. According to this, the article shows that the author through this short story wants to say that suicide bombing behavior is included in jihad on the battlefield and its death is martyrdom. However, female authors are still often trapped in the male writing style (androcentrism), which places women as weak, passive, sweet, obedient, must be protected, and neglected. Even when women decide to contribute to the war. The female character's decision to commit suicide bombing is motivated by her frustration over her husband's death.
