Numerous studies on gender representation in Indonesian textbooks have portrayed gender stereotypes in textbooks that demonstrate gender inequality, such as sexual violence, sexism, and double burden. However, there are only a few studies on gender representation in textbooks dedicated to students who are deaf. This study aimed to analyze gender stereotypes in the Indonesian special senior high schools textbooks dedicated to deaf students, using qualitative method. The results of this study show that gender inequality existed in some of the textbooks. Gender inequality was mainly portrayed in the figures and the materials illustrated in the English learning textbook for Grade 11 dedicated to students who are deaf. The figures and the materials in the textbooks did not demonstrate equality of occupation for both genders. Since deaf students, who rely heavily on visual aspects during their learning, need to be exposed to materials that demonstrate gender equality to foster gender equality awareness, it is recommended for textbook designers to develop textbooks that illustrate gender equality.
