Female Bigots: 'Aryan' Women Online
The appearance of a set of hate sites with contents created specifically
by and for extremist women, such as Her Race, Women for Aryan Unity,
and World Church of the Creator Women's Frontier, heralds a new
development in online hate. By speaking up and working to define their
own roles in the white supremacist "movement," these female
extremists have appropriated feminism's struggle for women to be heard
for the despicable purpose of spreading intolerance.
Some hateful women on the Web echo the positions promoted by their male
counterparts: opposition to non-whites, hatred of miscegenation, and anger
at "anti-White" control of the media.
From the Her Race Web site, which is housed at Don Black's Stormfront,
comes "Gaia: Everyone's Mother" by Inga Niteau. Niteau declares,
"Whites are facing extinction as more non-Whites reproduce and invade
our lands." She asserts that "Whites have a right to have many
more children than non-Caucasians."
"Lights, Camera, Action," by Lisa Turner, declares that "White
people are subjected to anti-White images via television and motion pictures"
because "the enemy forces have total control of the film world and
movie-making business." Turner dreams of a "White people's 'Oscars'"
at which whites "all sit together in a dazzling hall and applaud
as our enemies do now for their lackeys."
Though these articles bear some resemblance to those created by racist
men, most women's hate tracts focus on discussions about proper roles
for extremist females. Interestingly, the positions voiced at these sites
mirror those expressed in conventional discussions about women's roles
in mainstream society, contrasting "stay-at-home" mothers with
Like their male counterparts, extremist women on the Web deny that Blacks,
Jews and other minorities are equal to whites. Yet many extremist women
argue that they themselves should be given the same consideration as white
men in the workplace. By joining the workforce, these women believe they
can better aid the white supremacist "movement."
At the Her Race Web site, Nancy Jensen, who claims to be "a
staunch National-socialist female majoring in pre-medicine at an Ivy League
institution," explains that she does not "intend to solely raise
children and be a house-wife." Describing staying at home in an extremely
denigrating and anti-Semitic way, she states:
Nature intended that women use their brains to advance their race...For
comrades to suggest that women squelch this natural instinct by solely
being a house-wife, they are acting unAryan and clearly violating laws
of Nature. I mean look at the Talmud the Jews are the ones who advocate
treating women as breeding tools and property. How dare NS [National
Socialist] comrades stoop to the level of the Jews in such a manner.
Also at the Her Race Web site, Jane Burton presents an article
about appropriate "Careers for White Women," such as "Lawyer,"
"Human Resources Worker," "Advertising Writer," and
"Real Estate Agent." Telling women "the White race needs"
their help, Burton writes, "You need to work; so work in the right
direction!" She asks, "What well-paying, interesting jobs could
you choose that would most advance your race?"
|By speaking up and working to define their own roles in the white supremacist
'movement,' these female extremists have appropriated feminism's struggle for women to be
heard for the despicable purpose of spreading intolerance.
Many other racist women suggest that females should be equal partners
in the extremists' struggle, even when that struggle involves violent
action. Nancy Jensen believes that women who would choose to lead the
"movement" on the battlefield should be given the opportunity
to do so. "As for the issue of women physically defending their race
or country," she writes, "if they possess that desire and ability,
than [sic] they should go for it."
Other sections of the Her Race Web site also promote female extremist
political activism. "Diana, Love of a Princess" by Lisa Turner
recognizes "the unique power a woman can have in the political world."
Writing without any apparent sense of irony, Turner states that the white
supremacist "movement" "desperately needs more women"
because "women can represent nurturing, love, reaching out, touching,
bridging a gap, and bringing a gentle, diplomatic approach to the problems
Sharron Edwards, writing at the Web site of the fascist British National
Party, encourages "less faint-hearted women to stand as candidates"
for public office. Though she claims not to be "just another passenger
on the feminist bandwagon," she believes it "only right that
women join our men in the battle to alleviate the perils of the present
age" and sees "the contesting of elections" as "inevitably
an important part of the struggle."
Even some bigoted sites created by men promote active female participation
in the "movement." Thom Robb's Knights of the Ku Klux Klan Web
site features an "Aryan Women's Page" that boasts, "the
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan under the leadership of David Duke was the
first Klan organization to include women in its general membership."
The Australian Revolutionary Movement (ARM) Web site declares, "If
a woman has the desire to serve her nation in an active service role,
she should be encouraged, if she desires to work alongside her male comrades,
she should be commended." ARM also suggests that "if a woman
can defeat a man in combat, then the woman should be revered."
In contrast, other Internet documents composed by women promote child
rearing and other "domestic" tasks as women's greatest contribution
to the "movement," echoing Hitler's view that women should focus
on "Kirche, Küche, Kinder" (church, kitchen, children).
While some articles at the Her Race Web site promote extremist
women's political activism, others advocate more "traditional"
female roles. For instance, Kate Bell offers a detailed account of childbirth
in "Birth of a White Child," asserting that she's "actually
doing something that helps our cause" by giving birth to white
children. "Race Mixing," an article by "Zennia," urges
white women to stay away from non-white males.
The Women for Aryan Unity Web site urges racist women to "stand
by" their husbands by keeping their homes and providing for their
"comfort." These women are upset that they have been taught
they "are no longer needed in the home as wives and mothers"
and angered that they "have been forced to compete with men for the
Calling for women to balance domestic duties and white supremacist activism,
World Church of the Creator (WCOTC), a pseudo-theological extremist group
that attacks Christianity, Judaism, Blacks and immigrants with equal vehemence,
has made a special effort to reach out to females. WCOTC has created three
Web sites devoted to women: WCOTC Sisterhood, Pulcher Candidus Dea
("Beautiful White Goddess"), and the extensive Women's Frontier
Web site. The Women's Frontier site is coordinated by "Sister"
Lisa Turner, who has also written articles for Her Race and Aryan
Female Homestead Web sites.
In a document at that site entitled "The Woman's Role in The World
Church of the Creator," Turner outlines the group's position on women.
She explains that WCOTC sees the white woman primarily as "mother
to beautiful White children" but also points out that women, like
men, "can become Reverends and rise to positions of influence"
in the Church. Turner believes WCOTC "must utilize all the talent,
all the brainpower and man and womanpower" it can get because most
of "the White male population has completely and utterly abdicated
and abandoned their responsibility to defend the Race." If this was
not the case, she feels that women "wouldn't be needed to step into
front-line, defensive positions at all."
Significantly, Turner singles out Internet propagandizing as a way that
women can serve as mothers and activists at the same time. "For the
first time in the history of racial activism, women with children can
get on the Internet and promote Creativity without ever leaving home or
taking away from their family responsibilities," she writes. "This
technology can be utilized by women at all stages of life our young
mothers, our older women activists who have acquired organizing abilities
and skills, and our teenage young women who are learning about their racial
The Women's Frontier Web site tries to motivate the Church's female
members, calling for Women's Frontier "chapter leaders." The
site features interviews with women "Creators" (as the Church's
members call themselves); articles glorifying "white" women
(such as Queen Isabella, who ordered the expulsion of the Jews from Spain
in 1492, and Hypatia of Alexandria, the only recorded female scholar in
the ancient world); and a section entitled "The Mud Chronicles,"
which recounts "the bizarre, disgusting and criminal behavior of
the inferior mud races," i.e. Blacks, Asians, and other non-whites.
Additionally, the site provides "The Creator Connection," a
"service designed to link Women Creators around the world with each
other so that they may share ideas, projects and provide mutual support
and Comradeship for one another."
In addition to its sites devoted to racist females, World Church of the
Creator has established an impressive, well-designed stable of hateful
Web sites that are not gender-specific, from WCOTC Teens to
Skinheads of the Racial Holy War.
