Political Science has identified a so-called “Gender Gap” in Radical Right Party (RRP) voting. Despite the centrality of class, gender and ethnicity/race, as well as emotions for this debate in the literature on RRP’s, these concepts have not been studied as intersecting and little consideration has been made to the role they might play in explaining the gendered difference in RRP support. This paper calls for a theorization of emotions that permeate the scholarly debate. Combined with an intersectional perspective, Affect Theory can help us understand how politically mobilized emotions are shaped, and in turn, shaping multiple and intersecting categories of difference and inequalities.
