The purpose of this study is to describe ecofeminism representation in a collection of children's stories. Women and nature have symbolic similarities because they are both oppressed by masculine characteristics. The source of this research data is a collection of children's stories by children's writers published by the Ministry of Education and Culture. The research data was obtained by reading a collection of children's stories over and over again, recorded, and classified according to the focus category of research related to the problem of ecofeminism. Data were analyzed using a framework of feminist literary criticism. The results of the study indicate that there is an eco-feminist representation in the short story entitled “mencari ujung pelangi”. Significant comparison was found in the form of expression (3: 0), action (8: 3), and the expression (4: 0) between feminine and masculine as a repositioning of ecophysists. In this analysis it is proven that women's gender is more concerned with the natural environment, has more responsibility for preserving nature and its balance (ecofeminis). Women have more involvement than men in jobs to sustain life projected with concern for environmental conditions of pollution both on mountains, lakes, garbage disposal, and tree felling. Not only that, the actions of female leaders to remind security to stop the damage that has caused lake water pollution and flooding are manifestations of concern for ecology.
