A Feminist Analysis of Juana’s Attitude and Voice in The Pearl

Abstract

The Pearl exposes a patriarchal role in an indigenous Indian-Mexican family, assuming Kino as

a leader who holds the large control of the family and Juana as the less powerful. However, when

he fails, Juana is able to handle the family. Even, she is described as a different figure who

transforms from an obedient and passive woman to a braver and assertive one, particularly in

expressing her view. Juana‟s contrasting portrayal has triggered this study to analyze her attitude

and voice in the family by a guiding question “What are Juana‟s actual role and position in the family?” To find the answer, this study used Existential Feminist which is discussed in Simon de

Beauvoir‟s Second Sex. The findings reveal that Juana‟s actual role and position in the family do not reflect a real empowerment. Instead, they supports the idea that woman is under the control

of man as his „others‟.
