ABSTRACT
The article looks at French politician Marine Le Pen, focusing on her role as leader of the National Front (FN) party. The author feels that the party's success is due in part to Le Pen's liberalized view towards the far-right policies instilled by her father, former FN leader Jean-Marie Le Pen. The movement of French president Nicolas Sarkozy's policies towards Le Pen's brand of conservatism is discussed.
