Femonationalism Source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Femonationalism

Femonationalism, sometimes known as feminationalism, is the association between a nationalist ideology and some feminist ideas, specially when having xenophobic motivations.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

The term was originally proposed by the researcher Sara R. Farris[1] to refer to the processes by which some powers line up with the claims of the feminist movement in order to justify racist, xenophobic and aporophobic positions, arguing that migrant people are sexist and that Western society is entirely egalitarian.[1][2][3]

The main critiques of this phenomenon focus on the partial and sectarian use of the feminist movement to further ends based in intolerance, ignoring the sexism and lack of real equality in Western society as a whole.[2][5][7]
