Who Are The Women Helping Guide The Far Right?

Dec 17, 2018

The most common image of white supremacy, nationalism, and other far-right movements is of angry men. Often overlooked are the women.

On the surface, they may appear less menacing. But in many ways, they serve a more insidious role: lending their groups a more palatable, family-values cover under which to operate and spread messages of intolerance.

Today, we talk with Glenna Gordan, a photojournalist who spent more than a year and a half meeting with and documenting such women.

They run the gamut from social media mavens with deeply held personal convictions to outcasts wanting to be part of something larger, even if they don't know what these groups are fully about.

To end on a less dour, more cheerful note, we then change course to a conversation on the best --and worst--Christmas songs of all time. How do your favorite holiday jingles measure up?
