Résumé
As a social movement strategy, intersectionality is used to foster the inclusion and representation
of minority groups. In this article, we examine how Québécois women’s organizations use
intersectionality as a tool to include immigrant and Native women. We argue that intersectionality
can entail different practices with potentially conflicting goals. We conclude that social movement
scholars would benefit from paying attention to intersectionality and to how it is practiced by
activists and organizations. Indeed, a focus on intersectionality sheds light on the tensions inherent
in the processes by which organizations construct collective identities, formulate political demands,
manage internal conflicts and build alliances.
