Abstract

Gender as a social construction that gave birth to dissimilarity, was born through socialization, culture, religion, and state power. The noble principles of Indonesian people since independence on 17th of August 1945 until the present, during 73 years of independence, are still unable to found a harmonious relationship between the press (read: media), government and society (women). This research aims to describe gender roles in the perspective of media law. The research methodology used within this study is a qualitative descriptive approach using inductive thinking and thematic analysis. The outcomes of this research show that there are new findings, namely: The establishment of media must be state incorporated; Women as part of the media community understand the functions of non-press and the press media; and finally the media and women realize that the media world is always in touch with the law as well as the legal vacuity.
