Abstract :

Gender is a cultural concept constructed by society to define man and woman. This study aims to analyze the gender performance of the main female character in Cassandra Clare's "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones." Clary Fray, the female protagonist who is determined to save her missing mother, is portrayed as a feminine-masculine character through her performance by joining Shadowhunter. As the qualitative method and Gender Performativity by Judith Butler are applied to the discussion, the study discovers that Clary Fray learns to behave in a certain way by imitating some figures to attain a certain ideal of beauty in order to be accepted by society.
