This chapter identifies the VOTF movement as a specific type of social movement, one operating within an institution. It provides a definition for IISMs and describes the distinguishing characteristics of their target and participants. The consequences of VOTF’s institutional positioning are revealed in the movement’s public banning from meeting in several Catholic dioceses. This chapter highlights questions related to the ability of VOTF to project a mainstream Catholic identity, the centrality of identity negotiations, and the contentious nature of protest within defined institutional spaces.

Keywords:   Voice of the Faithful, intrainstitutional social movement, Catholic Church, protest, diocese, Catholic identity, authority, institution
