Gardner hypothesized that western outrage and punitive approaches towards paedophilia was due to a Jewish conspiracy which caused hysteria in mothers and the state. Unsurprisingly, this recently compelled Italy’s supreme court to prohibit ‘parental alienation theory,’ branding it ‘unscientific Nazi theory’.
Spain and Italy heard how judicial and social work interpretation of legislation were clouded by prejudices and stereotypes. This poor understanding has led to an explosion in the use of misogynistic narratives like parental alienation; otherwise known as ‘malevolent mother syndrome’ or ‘implacable hostility’ in custody disputes, with chilling outcomes for children.
