|Calling for "Equality" to Promote White Supremacy
While denying that Blacks, Jews and other minorities are equal to whites, many
extremist women argue that they 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
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
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?"
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 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,
then 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 more women are "desparately needed by the white supremacist
movement" because "women can represent nurturing, love, reaching out, touching,
bridging a gap, and bringing a gentle, diplomatic approach to the problems at hand."
She writes, "the power of love -- not just data, facts, statistics, debate and
political maneuvering -- will put this movement squarely where it ought to be." The
site's "White Women Hall of Fame" features information on numerous female
right-wing politicians around the world, such as Pauline Hanson (Australia), Pia
Kjaersgaard (Denmark), Alessandra Mussolini (Italy), and Catherine Megret (France), with
whom the site's promoters identify.
World Church of the Creator Women's Frontier Newsletter
In its first E-mail newsletter, the WCOTC Women's Frontier (which is currently led by
Lisa Turner) asserts that the current paucity of active white supremacist women
"pleases the JOG [Jewish Occupational Government] enemy greatly." The Frontier
wants to force its enemies "to contend with a true PEOPLE'S REVOLUTION -- a
revolution composed equally of fighting, bonded, White Men and Women who are committed to
the same goals, the same ideals." Asserting that they will "no longer play the
JOG game of pretending that this is an 'all male' movement," the Frontier explains,
"we are a fighting force to be reckoned with."
British National Party
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." Racist Alex Curtis of San Diego wrote admiringly in his Nationalist
Observer E-mail mailing about "the Countess of Martel," a violently
anti-Semitic propagandist active in turn-of-the-century France. 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."
