Abstract

This research analyzes women’s issues in Dan Brown’s Inferno novel. There is a woman character named Sienna Brooks. Sienna Brooks is presented as a genius woman. Yet, she is alienated by her society because of that fact that she is genius. Sienna does a long journey along with a male main character in achieving her goal in the novel. Consequently, the researcher decides to analyze the role of Sienna Brooks as a genius woman character as a reflection of women equality in the novel. The intents of this research are to describe the roles of Sienna as a genius woman character in Dan Brown’s Inferno novel and to describe the factor that makes Sienna Brooks is able to play these roles. Thus, to achieve the intents of this research, the researcher uses the theory of Liberal Feminism by Betty Friedan. In analyzing the data, the researcher uses descriptive qualitative method. The results of this research are Sienna Brooks as genius woman character plays eight roles i.e. giving commands, leading ability, making decisions, a problem solver, a smart woman, a tough woman, calming to control, and having a good intention, and the factor that makes Sienna is able to play these roles is her educational background.
