Abstract

The proponents of the Third Wave Feminists, the young women, already have rights and freedom to choose, to do, to say and to think not accordingly with the existing norms. These young women do not need to struggle for their rights. They are free to choose their own lives. Third Wave feminists class themselves as independent and individual women. They have a better opportunity to seek and get job in many areas of work. This thesis discusses feminism spirit shown by Merida, a medieval time woman, in Brave. The writer use feminism approach, especially third Wave feminism as Merida’s characteristic suits third Wave characteristics. She expresses herself without worrying about other people’s perception. In the movie she can be compared to her mother, the queen, who is a typical medieval woman. This study mainly uses Naomi Rockler-Gladen theory. According to Rockler-Gladen, third Wave feminist characteristics are creating women’s own identity, becoming a survivor not a victim, using her personal empowerment, speaking up for an unfairness without worrying about the norms, and freely choosing her own partner of life. The writer also use theory of woman’s life in medieval time. This theory is used to analyze the differences between the traditionalist and the feminist. The result shows that Merida can express her feminist spirit although she lives in medieval time so that she became different from other women. Merida is able to create her own identity, to become a survivor, to use her personal empowerment, to speak up for an unfairness without worrying about the norms, and to choose her own partner freely. The result also shows that the conflicts between Merida and her mother in the movie represent the conflict between the feminist’s characteristics and the medieval-age women’s characteristics.
