The article demonstrates how majority women’s organizations in Denmark and Norway react differently to the challenge of collaborating with new groups of women in society. The question of collaboration with minority women’s organizations prompts existing majority organizations to navigate between a Scylla of paternalism and a Charybdis of paralysis. Based on interview data collected within majority women’s organizations, the conclusion is that Norwegian organizations are relatively more prone to paralysis and Danish organizations relatively more prone to paternalism.
