Joahanna Massé a PhD student in the Department of Political Science at Université Laval. For the past three years, under the tutelage of Dr. Aurélie Campana, her main focus has been terrorism as perpetrated by women. Her previous studies have focused on International Relations and Securities Studies, and she completed a double Bachelor’s degree in Law and Political Science, after which she went on to obtain a Master of Arts in International Relations at Université Paris I – Panthéon Sorbonne, France. Today, her main focus is on the radicalization process of women in American and European countries. While it is still a relatively new subject, it is one that involves gender violence, home-grown terrorism and online radicalization – subjects for which understanding is still relatively poor but which continue to gain importance.
