Women gold miners have a big influence on food security in households economy at rural area, especially at Nagari IV Sawahlunto regenc.It has been known for ages that male became the dominant role,but in Minangkabau woman regarded as dominant role due its matrilineal system of social life. This research was qualitative research which is naturalistic or natural, it is also done on a particular natural background and case.The results of the study can be concluded that women gold miners occurred because of economic factors of the nuclear family and extended family. Besides that- social and cultural factors also became the reason for the alignment of Minangkabau tribes meaning who viewed that women have the same right to go into the public sector, especially to withstand the economic pressure. The involvement of women in the village market in terms of both economic and social culture has led to the transfer of knowledge and transfers of values not only in the nuclear family but also in the extended family.
