    Women Lured by Neo-Nazism

    Women lured by neo-Nazi nationalism

    The male-dominated, skinhead image of the German far right is rapidly changing with an influx of female recruits

    Kate Connolly in Berlin
    Wednesday April 4, 2001
    The Guardian


    Women from all walks of life now make up a third of the membership of some far right groups in Germany as neo-Nazi organisations attempt to cement their power base, shed their male-dominated image, boost their social acceptance and move out of the extremes into the mainstream.



    Statistics from a number of states indicate an explosion in female membership across the country as well as an increase in women-only groups, or Kameradschaften, such as the Free Girls' Union and Union of Homeland Loyalists, which aim to promote "pure Germany" and campaign against multiculturalism.

    The Thuringian branch of the BVD, Germany's security service, which monitors far right groups, said that in less than a year the proportion of women in far-right groups in the eastern state had risen from 20% to 30%. Lower Saxony and Hessen reported figures of 20% - with 30% in Kameradschaften - and in Bavaria numbers have increased by two-thirds to 16% in just two years.

    "It appears that women are increasingly finding emancipation in the scene and taking advantage of this," said Rüdiger Hesse, spokesman for the BVD branch in Lower Saxony. "They are lured by the modern packaging of hatred towards foreigners."

    The government has so far taken little interest in the rise of far-right women because they are rarely involved in the increasing number of violent attacks on foreigners. But the nationwide participation of females in far-right crime has increased from 4% in 1996 to 6% last year.

    Under Hitler, women were called to support the Nazi cause by staying at home and producing children under the slogan Heim und Herd (home and hearth).

    Now, in an attempt to attract young modern women, the Young National Democrats (JN), the youth wing of the German nationalist party (NPD) which is represented in parliament, has sought to turn the traditional approach on its head, recently coining the phrase: "Nationalism is also a girl's concern." It reports a "significant increase" in interest as a result.

    This week a documentary by Süddeutsche TV outlined for the first time the cult status the so-called "skingirl" scene has taken on. The programme visited Ehrenhausen in western Germany where 18% of people vote for far-right parties, and where Doris Zutt runs Patriotentreff - Patriots' Haunt - one of 50 similar fashion boutiques in Germany where modern skingirls can get kitted out.

    On sale were cropped T-shirts bearing the slogans "White Power" and "My Boyfriend is German". To complete the image, perfumes with names such as Nationalist - "the spicy fragrance of the great Reich" - were on prominent display.

    Very few women hold top positions in far-right groups, but as they gain importance behind the scene - organising events, promoting via the internet, distributing leaflets, and taking on the all-important role of child-rearers - there are signs that those days are not far off. Rainer Fromm, one of the producers of the documentary, said the women in the far right were not all from underprivileged backgrounds. "They are lawyers, nurses, librarians and pianists, from working class and middle class backgrounds, broken and stable homes."

    The largest growth in interest was among 15- to 25-year-olds, he added.



    One of the new breed is 22-year-old Melanie from Dorsten, north of Essen, who since joining the NJ six years ago has earned a reputation as one of the movers and shakers of the far right. She finances a luxury apartment by writing articles for far-right publications, organising neo-Nazi events and building a "no to multiculturalism" website.

    With her short brown hair and ironed blue jeans, she admits she does not fit the skinhead mould. "The question of protecting nationality is also an issue for women, and I want to have a role in that, and for that I can dress as I like," she said.

    Her rejection of anything non-German is such that she never drinks Coca-Cola, visits McDonald's or eats doner kebabs.

    Melanie marks what observers have identified as a dangerous shift in the far right. "These women are strengthening the scene," said Robert Bihler, spokesman for the BVD in Bavaria. "They make it more attractive to other women and men, and far more mainstream."

    Renate Bitzan, a political analyst from the University of Göttingen and one of a handful of German academics to have taken a close look at the new phenomenon, said a variety of reasons attracted women to the scene.

    "Some have close emotional ties to their grandparents and want to internalise the Nazi-era experience they had; often others have been sexually abused, and projecting their hatred on to foreign men in particular is a way of offloading this trauma, and for others, if they're white and German, they have an ideology and a group into which they can comfortably fit without trying very hard." In the past, women have followed boyfriends and husbands into far-right groups, but the recruitment trend has since changed considerably, said Dr Bitzan. "They enter the groups through girlfriends or purely out of personal conviction, and they find a scene which allows them to express themselves."

    Yeah, it's an evil Nazi conspiracy!

    I like the way the media always describes Nationalist leaders as masters of deception, luring young stupid people into their net. And then they attack us for having such a terrible and elitist view of human beings.

    Sadly, I still believe most Nationalist girls are with us because of their boyfriend. However, the increase could very well depend on the increased rate of multicultural rapes etc.

    Post AW: Women lured by neo-Nazi nationalism

    Well the first thing I found quite idiotic on this by Kate Colloney was this.......
    Women lured by neo-Nazi nationalism
    Really it expresses her ignorance upon the topic as "Nazi" signifies an allied term to describe what is commonly known as National Socialism yet she goes on title her piece with the words "neo-Nazi nationalism" thus repeating her emphasis toward the nationalist feeling of the article, really one should expect more from a journalist but not suprising these days as inconsistencies are more apparent among mainstream B grade journalists concerning such simplistic examples.

    This is a positive development for nationalism, which is a movement that needs to embrace the whole of society not just the male warrior element.
    However I suspect that there will be many within White Nationalism, especially men who may still assert that a "womans place is in the home", forgetting past NS heroines of the Reich such as Hanna Reitsch, the test pilot and others within the fringe of the movement such as Leni Riefenstahl.
    We would do to remember the valkyrie archetype which lies dormant in the Collective Unconscious of Ario-Germanic women which one is still privileged to occasionally see in exceptional women.

    The women have almost the capacities of men, in politics and everywhere. Perhaps, the physical strength is not at the same levels, but nowadays we see more and more men with lower physical strength, too, unfortunately.

    Considering women to be able to join skinheads, it's strange it makes me puke, but why not, I think they are able to do that, too.

    But in the same time, I confess that I always avoid skinheads, where I see them, because their social origins seem to be at least peculiar.

    The skinheads that I know are the salt of the earth and would harm no one unless they are attacked first. They also do not fit the Under Class stereotype that you obviously have of them.
    I repeat my earlier question, have you ever met any?

    Ok, to be sincere: I avoid them as I avoid NW, because they look dangerous. That's it.

    Only because they look dangerous? do you also avoid punks, goths and people in freaky fancy dress costumes as well?
