Women and Golden Dawn: Reproducing the Nationalist Habitus
Koronaiou, Alexandra; Sakellariou, Alexandros
Gender and Education, v29 n2 p258-275 2017
This article focuses on the place and role of women in the ideology of the Greek neo-Nazi political party Golden Dawn (GD). The article considers the place of women in GD's ideology as well as how GD envisages the role of women in society. It asks whether this vision of women's role is reflected in the participation of women in the party's activities. Based on a content analysis of material derived from the party's official websites, it is argued that women play a key role in GD's ideological edifice. This is evident in the party's concern with the construction of a "nationalist habitus" for women. This habitus is rooted in ideas of anti-feminism, motherhood and family and the primacy of nation and nationalist sentiment in determining women's lives.
