Abstract: As the title states, the hegemony of patriarchal society is portrayed in Ahmad Tohari “Ronggeng Dukuh Paruk”. Written in 1982, Ronggeng Dukuh Paruk depicts events taking place in Banyumas, Central Java. In collectivism societies such as in Banyumas, every person is expected to follow the values and rules of that area but the protagonist character in Ronggeng Dukuh Paruk (Srintil) did not obey it. As a ronggeng dancer, she was expected to preserve the rules, values, and traditions of her society, but she did not. This leads to the question of how the protagonist of Ronggeng Dukuh Paruk fought against the patriarchal society and if she was really able to liberate herself from the patriarchal society’s domination. Patriarchy concept is relevant to be applied in this discussion. It is because the story takes place in the patriarchal society. The analysis revealed that Srintil’s struggle against the patriarchal society was not completely successful because she was trapped again in the patriarchal values. It is because she finally desired to be a good wife of Bajus, who treated her respectfully and helped her financially.
