The researcher chose the textbooks after doing a mini survey in all of the Islamic state elementary schools in Banda Aceh. To answer the research questions, content analysis method was applied to this research. Every page of the textbooks were analyzed to discover five aspects. They are visibility, firstness, feminine/masculine generic construction, activity, and occupation.
