This paper discusses the representation of women in a modern Javanese literary work entitled Dahuru ing Loji Kepencil (DILK) essay by Suparto Brata. This research uses the structural theory of figures and characterizations as presented by Panuti Sudjiman in his book Memahami Cerita Rekaan (1992). The method used is descriptive analytical method as proposed by Nyoman Kuta Ratna in his book entitled Teori, Metode, dan Teknik Penelitian Sastra (2004). It was found that Javanese women in the text are not in a subordinate position as in Javanese society. The women in the story are depicted strong, not subordinated by men, can even do things beyond what men can do. The view of women in the novel DILK has an important role as a family protector. There are three motivations behind the social action of Javanese women in the DILK story, namely sosiogenetic motives, biogenetic motives, and theogenetic motives.
