The differences between men and women in terms of roles and positions become a real problem in our society. In fact, those differences limit their movement and cause injustice. This study describes the gender bias contained in the revised edition of the Indonesian Language High School textbook which includes gender subordination bias, gender marginalization bias, and gender stereotype bias; and its relation to social culture in Indonesia. This study uses a qualitative descriptive method with documentation as data collection techniques. The data were analyzed with the stages of data reduction, data presentation and conclusion/verification. The conclusion of this study shows that the Revised Edition of the Indonesian High School textbook contains gender bias in the form of text and images. The most common gender biases are subordination, following gender stereotype bias, and gender marginalization bias. Gender bias is closely related to socio-cultural aspects that still see second-class women in terms of economy, education, politics, and society.
