The report, compiled by the Southern Poverty Law Center - a respected and well-funded group that tracks racist groups in the United States - says the “role of women in the far-right racist movement is changing. From compliant helpmates, cleaning, cooking and stitching the characteristic robes and pointed caps for their menfolk, they are taking on leadership positions, opening the eventual prospect that a woman could gain the dubious distinction of becoming the Grand Wizard of the KKK.”
This information published in its quarterly Intelligence Report,n it seems that the modern racist believes in the capacity of women to assume leadership positions and that they can or should take up weapons and become fighters in their often convoluted and disturbing to the average American cause.
One reason the role of racist females is being revamped women in this area is that they now make up 25 per cent of the membership of far-right groups and up to half of new recruits. They also bring an attitude that assumes equal opportunities for women. They want to assert themselves as being just as capable in the area of hatemongering as the men.
Lisa Turner, who started the Women's Frontier 15 months ago, part of a neo-Nazi group called the World Church of the Creator, recently said: "It seemed that a white woman's role in the racial movement was to write lonely prisoners and stand behind their boyfriends without much of an opinion about anything ... If we are going to overcome in this struggle we are going to have to do it together - man and woman - side by side."
Mark Dejevsky of The Independent Reports “The centre's spokesman, Mark Poto, says this has triggered anger among "many men in the movement", who are using the Internet to express their "outrage over these upstart women". Ms Turner says the men should blame themselves. "There is a vacuum of leadership", she says, and "leadership is a role ... which women in the Church can fill".
Mr Potok notes that the new women activists trace their roots to two earlier female "warriors" - Kathy Ainsworth, who was killed in a gun fight with police in 1968 when trying to bomb the home of a Jewish businessman in Mississippi, and Vicki Weaver, who was shot dead by police in 1992 when she tried to prevent the arrest of her husband, Randy Weaver, a white supremacist leader. "These were tough women," he says.
Kathleen Blee author of The Women’s Klan states that “in many cases, women and men in the Klan took different messages from common symbols. Klansmen praised womanhood to underscore the correctness of male supremacy; Klanswomen used the symbol to point out the inequities that women faced in society and politics. Klansmen sought political inspiration in the "great achievements"
