This study aims to describe the struggle of women in the fight against patriarchal culture in the novel Tarian Bumi by Oka Rusmini. The Approach used in this research is descriptive qualitative. This research uses the theory of feminism as its analysis knife. The data source in this study is the novel Tarian Bumi by Oka Rusmini, published by PT. Gramedia Main Library. The steps taken in data collection are as follows: repeated reading as a whole of the novel to fully understand its contents, record words, sentences, or important data relating to the problem under study, record and collect relevant theories that are relevant relate to research, conduct research based on existing theories, and draw conclusions. The steps in data processing are as follows: data description, data classification, data analysis, data interpretation, and evaluation. Data analysis techniques used are: data processing and presentation, reading the entire data, coding data and interpreting data. The findings in this study are that women and men should obtain equality in their rights and obligations, so that women can get freedom like men. The female characters in the novel Tarian Bumi oppose their own customs and culture for the sake of the realization of equality of rights between men and women regardless of certain social groups. Triangualation is defined as a data collection technique that combines various data collection techniques and existing data sources (Sugiyono, 2012: 241). In addition to the validity of the data, researchers also used FGD (Focus Group Discussion) as a means of evaluating the accuracy of research.
