This study aimed at finding out domestic violence against women in Indonesia, especially as reflected in the novel Isinga written by Dorothea Rosa Herliany. The violence as a form of discrimination against women due to the influence of patriarchal culture, norms and customs is still abundant. Women are required to be good wives who are able to serve their husbands, be obedient, maintain food availability, take care of their children, and so on. Men only have a role to provide homes and make offspring. In Papuan culture, men who succeed in having many children will be more respectable. However, this is bad for the women body and psychological states. The results showed that the character in the novel tried to contextualize existential feminism. Nevertheless, she eventually accepted patriarchal culture.
