Abstract

The dual role of Muslim women in functional structural construction gets its supportive theories. It may sound classic, but such perspective is sufficiently supportive towards the construction of women and such phenomenon is happening in the society today. Women who work in the conception of Islam are considered supporting the family construction in adaptive and integrative functions. Self-control in working women in demanding their rights to be a superior in the household is controlled by religious values, so that women are willing to be number two where men are still the family leaders. This study describes the data descriptively with a qualitative approach, accompanied by several references in sharpening the writing analysis. The results of this study indicate that working Muslim women are more cooperative in carrying out roles in the household as feminine humans by showing their expressive character, while men are more masculine with roles that tend to be instrumental. Women with a more expressive character, supported by Islamic religious value system that teaches women as a makmum (someone who joins in an Islamic prayer) for men in the family, tend to take a good care of the family with sincerity and responsibility.
