This research report explores the links between women’s roles and perceptions, gender relations, and the spread of fundamentalist ideologies and extremist violence. Based on a pilot project in Indonesia, it synthesises research evidence on the participation and leadership of women and women-led organisations into strategies to prevent violent extremism (PVE). In doing so, it directly addresses the lack of gendered analysis of counter-terrorism (CT), countering violent extremism (CVE), and PVE dynamics and agendas in South-East Asia.
