Abstract

This paper seeks to outline the representation of woman character specifically in using her drive in responding
to androcentrism in Mulan in Disney Beloved Tales. It is one of short stories written by Jane Brierly, Robyn
Bryant and Stephanie Werner and published in 2001 in Canada. The androcentrism undergone by woman main
character will be discussed. The great upward drive will be discussed and related to the woman main
character's response to androcentrisms. This will be placed in the context of woman representation in literary
works. The approaches used in this discussion are feminist and psychological approach. Feminist approach is
used to know the woman character's position in the story and how she is represented. Psychological approach is
used to know the psychological state and the response of the main character toward the androcentrisms in the
story . The method of the study used in this thesis is deductive method from the general discussion to the specific
discussion. The data are collected through library and cyber research. The result of the research shows that
Mulan, the main woman character experiences three kinds of androcentrisms namely woman for reproduction,
ethical concept and warfare. She uses her great upward drive in responding the three androcentrisms. The
representation of Mulan is made very positively that gives good values about woman character in the literary
work.
