The presentation will focus on the situation of participation of women in preventing and countering violent extremism in Cameroon. Here will be an overview of the national situation in the say specific areas of study. Additionally, there will be emphasized on the links between the national people daily life and the subsequent impact on economic, social and cultural development. The survey did around the participation of women give the feeble rate. The rate gives the low weight on women who in their majority are less represented indecision-making. For that low-rate reason, this category of the population is highly exposed to all these forms of violence because their decision-making power is quite minimal and they have limited bargaining power because of the patriarchal society in which violence against women and children fits as tolerated cultural practice. Despite considerable improvement in the perception of women and children resulting in greater respect for their rights, some countries in the world still seeing them as the object, for women as a family asset and an object of pleasure and procreation. These are few consequences link to the negative impact of women participation. In many poor countries we have to do with violated relationships with some categories of populations. These categories are always victim of many types of violence because of their respective social status and sometime as we said early a cultural barrier. We have these types and manifestation of violence.
