CORNEJO-VALLE, Mónica  e  PICHARDO, J. Ignacio. Actors and strategies of Spanish anti-gender mobilization: shifting from church politics to lay activism. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.43, pp. 524-542. ISSN 1519-549X.

This chapter explores actors and strategies of Christian lay activism in Spain, considering how these actors have become representative voices of the discourse on "ideology of gender" that Catholic Church is promoting. Some general data about the historical context in Spain are presented in order to clarify the factors that make the Spanish case specific. We will then analyze who are these Christian lay activists (namely Hazte Oir, Foro de la Familia, and the new political party Vox) and what are their organizational structure and connections with the Catholic Church, advocacy groups or political parties. Thereon, the repertoire of mobilization will is considered, paying special attention to old and new actions: from demonstrations and crowded masses to active bloggerism, massive posting, Twitter and social media campaigns, complaints in court, signage and symbols or international conferences. The analysis includes reactions and impact of their strategies and activities on policies, public opinion and other social actors. To conclude, an explanation is presented of why these strategies have mostly been unsuccessful in recent years and why the most noticeable promoters of anti-gender discourses are becoming a radicalized minority in Spain.
