The gender dispute in the Spanish state from the analysis of the Catholic activism
Since the development of gender policies by the Spanish government, diﬀerent social and political actors, including the Catholic Church, have been discussing the so-called «gender ideology». The revision of these anti-gender discourses, actions and strategies allows us to clarify the term «ideology» and, in turn, to explain how gender has become a political concept in dispute in our society, not only within feminist theory, but within certain groups opposed to the recognition of the rights of women and LGBT people. We also take into account the perspective of critical Catholic groups who promote a closer relationship between religion and contemporary social problems.
