Sample text

This omission in the research on social movements is directly addressed by my findings written in this book. In order to fully understand the role of straight allies with assisting a social movement organization, I discuss the concept of collective identity in social movements by addressing the insights of new social movement theory. Lastly, I explore how identity interplays in social movement organizations. Notably absent in the dominant works of both resource mobilization and political opportunity theories is the concept of collective identity as a mobilizing and unifying factor of social movements (Polletta and Jasper 2001).

When there is strong contention toward a particular movement, a countermovement may emerge (Meyer and Staggenborg 1996; Mottl 1997; Rohlinger 2002). In these instances, movement organizations must compete with countermovements in order to gain political allies and, hopefully, an advantage over the opposing movement organization (Meyer and Staggenborg 1996). In the earlier example, NOW and its countermovement CWA assessed the ability to get and accurate media coverage, then framed and adjusted their messages accordingly.

Recently, Gamson (1997a; 1997b) explored the developmental relationship of lesbian and gay identity with regards to identity construction within current lesbian and gay organizations. In order to secure political gains and achieve successful resistance, lesbians and gays created a “minority” identity that is conceptualized as fixed, or “essentialist” (Bernstein 2002; Gamson 1995; Seidman 1993). Lesbians and gays have created common political and cultural institutions, much like an ethnicity—even having its own flag as a symbol of a collective “we” (Cortese and Dowling 2003; D’Emilio 1992; Gamson 1995).
