Liz Montegary takes a closer look at how anxieties over “gender ideology” – which have been fueling rightwing movements in Europe and Latin America for almost a decade – are now gaining traction in the United States and informing conservative attacks on queer and feminist studies, colleges and universities more broadly, and the entire institution of public education.
