This ongoing project (with Julia Elad Strenger and Lihi Ben Shitrit), which received the support of the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation (2020-2021) and of the Israeli Science Foundation (grant no. 2623/21; 2021-2025), examines how women’s visibility in far-right movements and parties increases public support for far-right agendas, and explores the role of gender stereotypes in underlying these processes.
