This chapter looks at the things that were at stake for the women in Women United and Family Aid. It studies the important sites of resistance against the dominant gender standards and looks into the dynamics of the organizations. These dynamics reveal that power can still be gendered even inside a social context that lacks men. Specifically, this chapter studies the internal gendered hierarchies and the presence of subtle resistance. This chapter determines that, despite the differences in ideology between the members of these two organizations, their everyday lives were similar in terms of resistance and reproduction processes.
