Female Leaders of Right-Wing Movements a Strategic Choice?

​Katrine Fangen, Professor at the University of Oslo and member of the PRIO project 'Reaching Out to Close the Border: The Transnationalization of Anti-Immigration Movements in Europe (MAM)' was recently interviewed in framtida.no on the role of female leaders in European right-wing movements (in Norwegian), arguing that it can be a strategic choice to put women in front of the movement both to soften the message and to appeal more to female voters.
