Recently published ” Not all Nazis are men: Women’s underestimated potential for violence in German Neo-Nazism. Continuation of the past or novel phenomenon?” by Andrea S. DauberPosted: September 25, 2014
We would like to recommend you this article by Andrea S. Dauber about women in Nazi and Neo-Nazi movements in Germany.
The scope of Neo-Nazi women’s aggression and violence is not a modern phenomenon or an exception. Their invisibility is not a result of their suggested passive involvement; it stems from the public’s and institutions’ inability to perceive them as agents of violence. Bourdieu developed the concept of symbolic violence to characterize the violence experienced by victims who accept their societal subordination. It is shown that because researchers, officials, and the public reified the concept; they overlooked the reality that women can exercise their agency beyond the limits of their roles as wife and mother and commit violent acts
Reliable data are not available on the number of violent female Neo-Nazis. It is likely, however, that the numbers given are an underestimation.
Law enforcement agencies have long overlooked women as potential offenders. A basic change in perspective is needed to better identify female perpetrators.
