Gabrielle Bouchard, a man who identifies as a woman, has been elected to serve as president of the Fédération des femmes du Québec (FFQ), Quebec’s main women’s federation.
Bouchard, who ran unopposed, recognizes that “some women are really, really, not happy” that a male individual has been elected to lead a women’s rights organization.
The FFQ’s mission includes the aim to “deconstruct and eliminate patriarchy and all the other systems of oppression or domination with which it is intertwined, such as capitalism, racism, imperialism, heterosexism, colonialism.”
