Catherine Stinton


Cath started her PhD at the University of York in September 2020. Her research explores what motivates women towards far-right extremism and ideology, centering explorations of gender, whiteness, and racism, and other anti-minority attitudes within mainstream society as well as fringe movements. Through a digital ethnography of far-right communities, she studies the methods and rhetoric employed by extremist groups to appeal to women, and the activism and agency of women within such organisations.
