This study revealed that from the beginning, the character of Kyra had an awareness of women's oppression because of the rules made by The Prophet. Kyra's awareness heightened when she was confronted with a matchmaking and polygamy conflict for herself. This was evidenced when The Prophet announced that Kyra would marry Uncle Hyrum (Uncle Kyra) and become his seventh wife. This finally made Kyra even firmer in doing resistance to defend herself. Kyra has the opinion that all women have the right to do everything they want, including choosing a husband for herself. Kyra did various resistance, such as asking for help from people around Kyra until finally, she decided to escape from the community. The impact gained from Kyra's resistance was physical violence took the form of punishment for Mariah, Kyra's boyfriend, The Chief and Owner Ironton Mobile Library on Wheels, and Kyra.
