Abstract

Quantity and quality of family violence cases in Indonesia have increased significantly. Women and children are mostly being victims in family violence. During 2008, The National Commission for Women recorded, the number of women victims comes from family violence reach 6.800 cases. Women abuse is a primary indicator of child abuse, since violence in any part of the family equals violence in a very part. Although the enactment of The Indonesian Law number 23 year 2004 concerning Elimination on Family Violence had been done for several years, but still the number of family violence has increasing rapidly. More than 70% perpetrators of family violence are male. Does this condition occur due to the impact of patriarchal culture which positions men above the women? or does it occur due to lack of law enforcement with the old paradigm that the legal officers assuming the family violence is a part of family law so no need to intervene with it. This paper looks at factors influencing the family violence victimization in Indonesia in order to get an effective way combating the violence and eradicating this victimization.
