Summary/Abstract: The beginning of the 21st century was marked by the emergence and geographical spread of anti-gender movements in Europe and Latin America. The analysed research articles were selected through the Google Scholar academic search engine with the basic criterion for inclusion in the analysis being the mention of the term 'anti-gender' in the title, abstract, or the body of the text. Sixty-two papers on the subject of anti-gender movements have been included in the analysis, and the review is structured according to the main analytical approaches in social movements studies: regarding cultural artefacts and discursive frames, organizational characteristics and activist networks, and the structure of political opportunities. The article also analyses the conceptual definitions, the methods used, and the geographical coverage of the research. Based on the content analysis the author concludes the presence of heterogeneity in terms of the conceptual definition, homogeneity when it comes to methods and geographical coverage, and the prevalence of cultural artefacts and discursive frameworks when analysing anti-gender movements.
