[en] How a militant organization that adheres to feminist values and engages in antisexist actions can strengthen masculine domination within itself? Based on an ethnographic investigation into the anti-globalization group of Les Désobéissants, this chapter examines how masculine domination hierarchies the militant space and and how this militant space reconfigures the relations between men and women. By combining the contributions of the sociology of social movements and gender studies, it shows how the sexual division of activist labor and the pervasiveness of sexism in activist circles consolidate men power and privileges. However, this domination does not equally work for each woman and each situation, and is not without limits. Female defections and microresistance introduce breaks in the rock of masculine domination.
