Women in every given society are treated as abandoned commodities and sometimes susceptible as to what they represent. The international community continue to experience violation done on women rights especially those related to Female Genital Mutilations, Sexual Harassment, Voluptuous Abuses, Rape, widow practices and many other harmful practices. These practices experienced by women on the international scene are not exempted in Cameroon; in matters related to violence. Cameroon comprehended and documented as a State of Law, devours great efforts in certifying that women anguishing from the effect of violence should be protected. In exercising these efforts, the country has ratified a series of international, regional and even sub-regional laws in combating violence done on women. National laws such as the Constitution, the Penal Code, Labour Code, Civil Status Registration Ordinance, Civil Code and many others have been enacted to deal with cases of violence done on women. The question posed is in ascertaining whether this continuous silent crime done on women can be exterminated? Will the women in their status and right experienced security on their established identity? In its entire ramification the story of violence experienced by women will be an unacceptable forum to say without terror that the women will be free from bondage of violence on their various statuses. This is really an oblivious hallucination.
