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.
