The American New Right is a complex ideological configuration that combines conservatism positions on social and economic issues. Like other critics of the Right, feminists respond to a web of discourses, policies, practices, and institutions related to "family values" and market fundamentalism. However, feminist scholars also intervene in conservative discourse and practice in unique ways by examining the roles of women and the meanings of gender on the Right, and by analyzing the intersectional consequences on the principal strands of the American New Right. We conclude with suggestions on future directions for feminist theory and research.
