Women, Gender and Fascism in Europe, 1919-45 investigates the role of women and gender in fascist and non-fascist movements of the extreme right. It re-examines the nature of the extreme right in the light of recent research in the field of women's and gender studies offering an accessible overview of developments in Germany, Italy, Spain, France, Britain, Hungary, Romania, Yugoslavia, Latvia and Poland. The book deepens our understanding of the paradox of female engagement within deeply misogynist movements, and casts new light on questions such as women's responsibility for the collapse of democracy in inter-war Europe, the relationship between the women's movement and the extreme right, and the relationships between conceptions of national identity (especially racial conceptions) and gender.
