img_3766October 12, 2016 Women, Terrorism, and Violent Extremism: Cultural and Organizational Difference

For this discussion, we focused on regional and cultural differences amongst extremist organizations. How have different extremist groups developed historically? What is the role of gender within different groups, and has that role changed over time? How do local cultures impact extremist groups, and how do those groups impact the surrounding cultures? What are the roles of violence and of hypermasculine or misogynist characteristics in extremist groups?
