Gender is studied here from a sociological point of view to analyze the feminization of far right and radical right politics. How does gender impact on men’s and women’s participation in these movements? What is the role played by gender in the internal struggles within these organizations and in the competition to secure legitimacy in institutional political field? We also want to discuss the uses of gender in political communication and propaganda. This panel mobilises gender studies to tackle the transformations – real, claimed, analyzed, dreamed or fantasized - of radical right and far right populist organisations.
