Abstract: Feminism is a women movement which demands emancipation or equality and justice between women and men. As a philosophy and a movement, feminism is closely connected with Enlightenment Era in Europe which is led by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu and Marquis de Condorcet. This is different with Indonesian women. In Indonesia, women still have position as second citizen. This can be observed in daily life, as reflected in the story “Taman Kunang-Kunang” by Fandrik Ahmad. The female character in the story is described as a housewife, replacing the previous deceased one. The woman's responsibility is to take care her husband's child from the deceased wife. In other words, the woman is only dedicating her life in domestic area. The writer analyzes this story uses Greimas' structuralism. By using aktansial scheme, the story can be understood clearly. Beside using Greimas' structuralism, the writer also analyzes this story based on the characters and characterization, and conflict. With these analyzes, we can find the position of the female character in the modern Indonesia where she tries her best to be a good wife and a good mother who is only active in domestic area
