AbstractDiscussions of the British extreme right, both in its pre-war and post-war manifestations, have tended to ignore the question of gender. A number of writers, however, have argued that, by definition, the extreme right should be seen as a highly patriarchal force. Closer examination casts doubt on this supposition, and suggests instead that for a movement organised around ultra-nationalism and resistance to the racial 'Other', but not around anti-feminism, gender has proved to be a matter of considerable debate.
