Abstract

Gender roles are defined as social construction of activities and statuses associated to specific genders in a society. This article aims to investigate gender roles among prehistoric community in Gilimanuk Sites based on the division of labor by sex. This research uses bioarchaeological approach by comparing entheseal changes on 42 male and female individuals. The result shows there is no specific activity associated to certain sex in daily subsistence. This indicates the gender construction in the prehistoric fishing community in Gilimanuk Sites.

Abstrak

Peran gender adalah konstruksi sosial ketika aktivitas dan status dalam masyarakat dikaitkan dengan satu jenis kelamin tertentu. Artikel ini bertujuan memahami peran gender pada masa prasejarah akhir di Situs Gilimanuk berdasarkan pembagian kerja sesuai jenis kelamin. Penelitian ini menggunakan pendekatan bioarkeologi dengan membandingkan jejak entesis pada perlekatan tulang panjang dari 42 individu laki-laki dan perempuan. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan tidak ada aktivitas fisik yang spesifik dilakukan oleh satu jenis kelamin saja dalam pemenuhan kebutuhan sehari-hari. Hal ini menunjukkan konstruksi gender pada masyarakat nelayan prasejarah di Situs Gilimanuk.
