The observation and appreciation of Gol A Gong on the social realities related to Manpower Workers was included in a novel entitled Gelisah Camar Terbang. The novel published by Gramedia Pustaka Utama (2016) is the object of study in this paper. A number of problems and the suffering of female workers abroad that have often become news in various media become an interesting part of the story to be listened to and think about a solution. This study aims to (1) describe the form of suffering experienced by overseas female workers in the novel Gelisah Camar Terbang, (2) describe the causes of problems affecting female workers, and (3) describe what efforts should be made to overcome them. Qualitative descriptive method is a method used in research. The results of the study showed that Indonesian women workers abroad experienced a lot of suffering including being victims of sexual abuse, unpaid salaries, and experiencing physical violence. These problems arise due to various things including the presence of irresponsible agents and distributors of labor and bad attitudes shown by the migrant workers themselves such as free association and luxury living.
