The use of woman image in advertising is very common. Many researches have proved that women images in advertising world are often depicted as man subordination. The images reflect a phenomenon in which woman was identically passive, while men are actively superior. Men images always reflect the idea of masculinity, macho, strong, superman, and other images related to masculinity. Many assumptions, especially come from feminist, have declared that phenomenon is caused men’s domination in capitalist system. In order they can control media as they want to preserve patriarchy culture. Based on that, the research tries to reveal how men images and positions in ads products for women, those are Nivea Body, Slimming Tea, Sunsilk, dan Enchanteur in Femina Magazine whose the top director and employees are women, moreover the segmentations of Femina Magazine is women. Researcher use Roland Barthes semiotic analysis method to know how men image in the ads. Semiotic is science that used to learn how signs work in our life that using text as a object.
