About Institute for Research on Male Supremacism
There is a deep need for an organization dedicated to increasing awareness of the serious dangers posed by the contemporary growth of male supremacist movements and to providing research for use by advocates, media, and other researchers to understand and counter these mobilizations.
That's why I decided to found the Institute for Research on Male Supremacism. Visit us at malesupremacism.org.
The Institute for Research on Male Supremacism (IRMS) exposes and challenges common narratives that provide shelter to male supremacist movements. IRMS will serve as a resource for media and a strategic partner for social justice groups working to confront the impact of misogynist ideology and organizing on the ground, in policy, and culture. The institute will highlight experts available for interviews and trainings on understanding male supremacism, provide a forum for researchers to share information from ongoing projects and comment on time-sensitive events, publish reports on various misogynist movements and ideologies, and facilitate collaboration and mentorship among researchers.
Who Are We?
My March 2017 article on Mobilizing Misogyny for Political Research Associates pre-dated the reports that have since been published on male supremacism by the Southern Poverty Law Center and Anti-Defamation League, influencing the shift in coverage and understanding of male supremacism. As a leader in developing the analysis of male supremacist movements, I have spoken widely at academic and social justice conferences, provided advice to nonprofit staff, and coordinated major ongoing projects for the study of misogynist movements. My current research includes analyzing incel mass violence as terrorism and working on a book overviewing the span of contemporary misogynist movements.
The Institute's fellows each bring particular expertise in the analysis of various aspects of male supremacist movements, from the men's rights movement to pickup artists to The Red Pill. We are predominantly female scholars and believe that women must be respected leaders in responding to an ideology threatening our own lives.
Please Support Us in Challenging Misogyny
I am asking you to support not only my own work, but also to help us create an institution that can provide a platform for researchers focused on male supremacism to collaborate with one another and to share their much-needed expertise with activists, policymakers, and media. Please make a commitment to the sustainability of the Institute for Research on Male Supremacism by becoming one of our founding patrons.
