The present study investigates the role and challenges of women's participation in nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). Despite some cultural and legal barriers, some cultural options and subjects have always been encouraged by their influential presence. Data collection was conducted through a questionnaire survey, and using cochran formula, 333 women who were members of NGOs in lorestan province were questioned. Using the AMOS software, the fitness indices of the structural equation model have been evaluated and confirmation of hypotheses has been investigated. According to the results, there is a significant relationship between activity in the NGOs and the proximity of the system and the world life. Activity in NGOs have been tied to voluntary presence, and volunteering means flexibility in accepting roles and activities that extend to the entire life of the members. The following theories used in this research, including habermas' theory, show that man can take a selective approach to the world of life, although the apparently socio-economic system in various ways in the form of social roles from birth to the end of life prevents the creation of such communication.
