In reality, Batak have several terms which refer to the strong existence of woman in Batak society. However, since the lineage is drawn from the male line as the case in patriarchal culture, the strategic roles of women themselves often become neglected.

It began by describing the real conditions of women in the context of Batak community. Furthermore, constructive critical study was carried out by looking at religious literature as well as myth.
