    Culture, Power, and Institutions: A Multi-Institutional Politics Approach to Social Movements.Elizabeth A. Armstrong & Mary Bernstein - 2008 - Sociological Theory 26 (1):74 - 99.
    We argue that critiques of political process theory are beginning to coalesce into new approach to social movements--a "multi-institutional politics" approach. While the political process model assumes that domination is organized by and around one source of power, the alternative perspective views domination as organized around multiple sources of power, each of which is simultaneously material and symbolic. We examine the conceptions of social movements, politics, actors, goals, and strategies supported by each model, demonstrating that the view of society and (...)

    Same-Sex Marriage and the Future of the LGBT Movement: SWS Presidential Address.Mary Bernstein - 2015 - Gender and Society 29 (3):321-337.
    In this article, I respond to queer critiques of the pursuit of same-sex marriage. I first examine the issue of normalization through a consideration of the everyday lives of same-sex couples with children, a subject about which queer critics are strangely silent. Children force same-sex couples to be out in multiple areas of their lives and recent court cases explicitly challenge the idea that same-sex couples do not make fit parents. Second, I examine whether same-sex marriage will address structural inequalities (...)

    Interests and Credibility: Whistleblowers in Technological Conflicts.Mary Bernstein & James M. Jasper - 1996 - Social Science Information 35 (3):565-589.
    Accompanying the increase in technical controversies in the last 20 years has been an explosion of whistleblowing by those involved in the design, implementation, and operation of complex technologies.

Whistleblowers gain credibility for speaking out contrary to their own interests and those of their employers, but they lack the organizational power to promote their definitions of the social problem.
