Abstract

 

The independence of the Republic of Indonesia (RI) was not obtained through gifts but was the result of the hard work of all its people, both men and women. Indeed, not many female figures were mentioned in this struggle; the number can be counted on the fingers. Many have even been almost forgotten by history, one of which is Inggit Garnasih, a strong female figure from Pasundan. His skills in managing strategies to support the nation's independence are packaged in verbal and non-verbal communication. She played this role even before marrying Soekarno and after divorcing him. This study aims to describe the struggle carried out by Garnasih in pushing for the independence of the Indonesian people because, so far, his role has been almost forgotten. This article uses a qualitative-descriptive method with observation techniques and a literature study. Based on a feminist and communication approach, Inggit Garnasih played many roles during her lifetime. Apart from being a mother and wife, in the public sphere, she appears as a persistent hero, delivering her nation to independence. Through a communication approach, Inggit is a communicator with many strategies.
