Can Feminism Trump Populism?
Right-Wing Trends and Intersectional Contestations in the Americas
By Julia Roth
The essay pursues a two-fold aim: to examine the logic and function of gender for (right-wing) populism in order to re-evaluate the phenomenon and expand the theorizing towards more complex forms of descriptions and analysis. Secondly, it seeks to sketch out spaces and practices of resistance that are also based on gendered politics (or, make resistance to anti-sexism their point of departure), such as the diverse feminist movements that are recently gaining strength and visibility.
