How far did women support Oswald Mosley's Black Shirts? This important reference work fills a significant gap in the historiography of British fascism, which has generally overlooked the contribution of the women’s movement to Britain's fascist experience. Looking at female fascist activism and the influence of feminist ideology on the fascist agenda, Julie V. Gottlieb shows the significant impact of feminist thought in this area. In spite of its mainstream vocal opposition to fascism, parts of the women’s movement as Gottlieb demonstrates, had an implicit connection with the British Union of Fascists.
