The House Bunny is an interesting movie since it presents a recent American
female issue of female sexy body which is taken into account as women source of
empowerment. Yet, this movie brings different perspective which is to challenge the
idea that sexy body can truly empower women to achieve goals. Thus, this research is

constructed in The House Bunny and to explain how The House Bunny challenges the
idea of employing sexy body as girl power.
This research is a descriptive qualitative research that takes The House Bunny
movie as source of data. The primary data consists of movie scenes, movie dialogues
and movie narrative. It is also supported with supporting information taken from
articles, e-books, journals, and others related references.

various diciplines in the forms of theory and approach in analyzing the movie. It
applies gender and post-feminism theories, semiotics theory and socio-cultural
approach in answering the research questions.

slut shaming, body as temporarily source of empowerment and the sacrifices in the
enactment of employing sexy body as girl power. Furthermore, to emphasize the
