520    This study explored factors contributing to Indonesians' 
       perceptions and attitudes toward violence against wives. A
       total of 181 individuals (91 males and 90 females) living 
       in rural and urban households in Kota Bandung (Bandung 
       City) and Kabupaten Bandung (Bandung Regency), West Java 
       Province, Indonesia that were listed in the 2009 National 
       Social Economic Survey were randomly selected. Data were 
       collected using face-to-face interviews with open-ended 
       and closed-ended questions 
520    The majority of Indonesians in this study were aware of 
       the existence of violence against wives in society. 
       Respondents tended to define violence against wives in 
       physical terms. They inclined to justify a husband hitting
       his wife when she was perceived to deviate from 
       traditional gender roles as a wife or mother. The findings
       indicated prevalent victim-blaming attitudes. The 
       participants also tended to express ambivalent attitudes 
       between protecting the victims and punishing the abusive 
       husbands.  In addition, Indonesians in this study reported
       preference for informal mechanisms in dealing with 
       violence against wives 
520    Feminist and socio-demographic perspectives that were used
       to generate hypotheses were partially supported. Attitudes
       toward gender roles, location of residence, and marital 
       status were among the most common variables significantly 
       associated with the definitions, contextual justification,
       and responses to violence against wives. Findings were 
       discussed in the light of a socio-cultural context. The 
       study's results posed some implications for social welfare
       practice, policy and research
