While opposition to feminist and sexual politics and to gender+ and sexual+ equality is not new at all, there is only recently attention to it in research and political analysis. There is at present a growing number of empirical case studies documenting and analysing such resistances and opposition, but there is a strong lack of more conceptual and theoretical contributions. For both scholarly and political reasons, we need to bring together the best scholars working on this to make further progress
