Research

Pragya’s area of research focuses on the interrelationship between misogyny and radical right violence and terrorism. Her work examines how misogyny of  radical right groups have evolved over time, how narratives of the radical right catalyse hateful views and actions toward women, and how the worldviews propagated by misogyny and radical right extremism have significant parallels, shared foundations and direct points of connection that justify violence as a legitimate course of redemption.
