This thesis investigates Elif Șafak’s 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World (2019) novel as the primary text. The novel depicted the 20th-century Turkish patriarchal system through the portrayal of animals in a subtle manner. This thesis aims for enriching the knowledge of animal metaphors and the impact of overlapping oppression through literary work. The approach used in this research is qualitative and presented in descriptive form. The data is collected through phrases that refer to animals either supporting or resisting the patriarchal authority and secondary sources such as books, journals, and other sources. This study was framed by the animal metaphor theory and theory of the patriarchal structures proposed by Sylvia Walby (1990) which discusses wage labor, household production, culture, sexuality, male violence, and state. The result of the study discovered that there are five animal expressions used by Elif Șafak to represent women's sufferings, powerlessness, as well as lack of freedom, such as wild animal, ram and lamb, pigeon, duck, and rabbits. Contrary, the superior position of men is represented by the mosquito. On the other hand, the wolf is the only animal metaphor that expresses society's opposition to patriarchal power in its entirety. Meanwhile, bird and butterfly serve as symbols of freedom. However, this study also discovered that there are six animal metaphors formulated against the system that are also subject to oppression and exploitation, such as cat, deer, blue betta fish, horse, turtle, and spider. All in all, almost all the characters depicted as animals in the novel are victims of the 20th-century Turkish patriarchal system covering all six aspects of Walby's theory
