The study of modesty culture and its correlation with rape culture in the media of Indonesia is a crucial examination of the societal norms and values that have a profound impact on the lives of women. The modesty culture, which values the suppression of sexuality and the need for women to be demure and reserved, has been shown to have a strong correlation with the perpetuation of rape culture in the media. This study aims to delve into this relationship, using a critical reading approach to analyze media content, in order to identify and understand the connection between modesty culture and rape culture. The findings of this study will be used to develop recommendations that will contribute to the creation of a safer and more gender-sensitive professional and personal space for Indonesian women. This study is a significant step towards addressing the harmful effects of traditional cultural values and creating a safer and more equitable society for women.
