Alex DiBranco is a Sociology PhD candidate at Yale University, specializing in the study of right-wing movements and male supremacy. Her dissertation seeks to understand the current U.S. political environment by looking back to the foundational period from the early 1970s through the mid-1990s in which the Right invested in a network of organizations and grassroots mobilization to change the political spectrum. She also writes periodically for The Public Eye quarterly at Political Research Associates on aspects of male supremacist ideology and movements, including incel violence and terrorism, and is a collaborator on a major project analyzing contemporary male supremacism and misogynist ideology.
Alex received her Sociology M.A. and M.Phil. from Yale University, analyzing how the reproductive justice movement field formed out of the pre-existing reproductive rights, black women’s health, and human rights fields. She was previously the Communications Director at Political Research Associates, an Editorial Board member for The Public Eye, and an editor and senior at Change.org editor and senior organizer focused primarily on women’s and immigrant rights. Her writing has appeared in outlets including Rewire, The Nation, Alternet, and The Public Eye.
