Description - Women and Fascism by Martin Durham

Despite its male predominance and popular perception as a misogynist movement, fascism has, on several occasions, proved able to win large numbers of women both as voters and members. Martin Durham addresses this paradox by dispelling the myth that fascism uniformly upheld anti-feminist policies and wanted women firmly kept in the home breeding the master race. Women and Fascism analyses the rise of women in fascist organisations across Europe from the early twenties to the present, with examples from Germany, Italy and France. Unusually, however, the author focuses on British fascism and in doing so he offers valuable new perspectives on fascist attitudes to women both as voters and members and highlights women's relationship to fascist policies on birth rate, abortion and eugenics.
