- This research aims to describe the text dimension, discourse practice, and sociocultural practice in Dewi Ria Utari’s short story “Topeng Nalar”. Feminism theory is applied along with qualitative descriptive method with Fairclough’s model. The results show that: (1) text dimension, the short story “Topeng Nalar” represents the characters’ real life, interpreted as the life of a single mother who supports her two children by doing mask dance (topeng means mask). “Nalar” or logic for character “I” is an idea of how a woman makes money. This idea tries to clear the misunderstanding of how a woman makes money; (2) discourse practice dimension is related to the story’s intertextuality and interdiscursivity, illustrated through character “I” use references to word references in the form of kejawen culture or habits in Javanese culture. The intertextuality is in North Country movie aired in 2005; (3) sociocultural practice is in which the author Dewi Ria Utari inserts the practice of feminism ideology to “Topeng Nalar” through the reality of daily life.
