This study aims to analyze the practices of Intimate Partnership Violence (IPV) against women in Semarang City as the capital of Central Java province in Indonesia and the factors that influence it. It is a qualitative research using interviews, focus group discussion, and documentation as data collection techniques. The sample was determined by the snowball-sampling technique with a total of 30 IPV survivors. The results showed that early marriage, alcohol or drugs consumption, trauma of abuse during childhood, husband’s temperament, communication, husband domination, economic problems, and infidelity have an effect on IPV against women. Meanwhile, the level of education is not recorded has a contribution to trigger IPV against women. The high rate of IPV against women indicates the low level of public awareness of the position of women who are vulnerable and must be protected, especially in societies with a strong patriarchal culture such as in Semarang City. In this case, the role of community in all stages in overcoming violence is needed to reduce the high number of cases in Semarang City.
