Abstract :

Indonesia is one of the countries with the largest tobacco production in the world and smoking has become a habit and part of the culture in Indonesia since long time ago. Both men and women smoked a lot in the past. In the old days, before the colonial period, people used to prefer to use kretek, a mixture of tobacco cigarettes with cloves, or klobot, with a hand-rolled tobacco covered by dried corn husk, banana leaf or palm leaf. The colonization and the changing times, however, have shifted the view of female smokers in the society and given a negative stigma against them. Stereotype is a generally subjective view subjected to a particular group of people or individuals. Anthropology students are known for their flexible thinking about culture and human behavior. The purpose of this study was to determine the stereotypes attached to female smokers by students. This study used online questionnaire for collecting the data. From this research, it can be concluded that most of the students interviewed considered that it was inappropriate for women to smoke and gave negative stereotypes to them.
