Astriani, Raras (2012) Pro-life Issue In The Third-Wave American Women’s Movement As Reflected In Juno The Movie. Sarjana thesis, Universitas Brawijaya.

Abstract

Film sebagai produk dari budaya popular dapat menggapai aspek sosial dan merefleksikan kenyataan pada suatu era. Di era 2000-an, gerakan pro-life (right-tolife) dan gerakan pro-choice( pro-abortion) berjuang untuk haknya. Isu-isu tersebut tetap menjadi perdebatan di Amerika sampai saat ini. Juno adalah film yang diluncurkan pada tahun 2007 ketika hak aborsi diizinkan di beberapa negara bagian di Amerika. Gerakan perempuan gelombang ketiga dengan pemahaman pentingnya menyelamatkan janin (pro-life) menyuarakan kepeduliannya dan ingin membuat perubahan. Mereka percaya bahwa aborsi menempatkan perempuan kedalam keadaan yang berbahaya. Pendekatan feminisme yang ditekankan pada gerakan feminisme gelombang ketiga digunakan di dalam studi ini. Pendekatan feminisme mengarahkan penggunaan teori pro-life (right-to-life) karena terdapat hubungan yang erat dengan masalah hak untuk memilih. Genre utama Northrop Frye’s yang berhubungan dengan teori kritik sastra di dalam musim gugur, musim dingin, musim semi dan musim panas yang menampilkan tragedi, satir, komedi, dan romansa tersedia sebagai metode diskusi ini. Hasil dari penelitian menunjukkan bahwa Juno menggambarkan pro-life dengan menolak tindakan aborsi. Sebagai pemuda, dia dapat dipandang sebagai salah satu yang mendukung gerakan perempuan gelombang ketiga/post-feminisme karena aksinya merekontruksi salah satu tuntutan gerakan perempuan gelombang kedua yang salah satu tuntutannya adalah tentang hak-hak reproduksi perempuan. Untuk peneliti berikutnya, pendekatan psikologikal direkomendasikan karenadi dalam Juno terdapat banyaknya masalah psikologi yang dihadapi remaja di Amerika yang berhubungan dengan konsekuensi dari budaya seks bebas. Seperti contohnya, bagaimana pengalaman pribadi Juno dapat mempengaruhi pendewasaannya di usianya yang muda.

English Abstract

Film as a product of popular culture can reach the social aspect that reflects the reality of its era. In the era of the 2000’s the pro-life (right-to-life) movement and pro-choice (pro-abortion) movement fight for their right. These issues are still debatable in America until now. Juno is a film which was launched in 2007 when abortion right is allowed in several states in America. The third-wave women’s movement with the understanding of the importance to save the fetus (pro-life) voiced their care and wanted to make an alteration. They believe that the abortion puts woman in a danger situation. Feminism approach, which stressed on third wave feminism, is applied in this study. This approach leads the use of the theory of pro-life (right-to-life) because there is close correlation with the problem of the right of choice. Northrop Frye’s major genre in relating with a theory of literary criticism on autumn, winter, spring, and summer that visualize tragedy, satire, comedy, and romance is served as method in the discussion. The result of the research shows that by rejecting abortion, Juno presents the prolife choice. As a youth, she can be regarded as one who supports third wae/postfeminist because her action constructs one of the second wave feminism which demands women’s reproductive rights. For further researches, it is recommended to use psychological approach because in Juno there are many psychological problems faced by American teenagers in connecting with the consequence of free sex culture. For example, how Juno’s personal experience can influence her maturity in her young age.
