The Feminist Movement

The feminist movement was a movement that occurred during the 1980's. It was a strong movement made by the women for the women. It sometimes is also referred to as the women's liberation, women's movement, or feminism. The feminist movement was a series of political campaigns for reforms on issues such as maternity leave, domestic violence, equal pay, women's suffrage, sexual harassment, and sexual violence. Feminism has gone through three waves. First-wave feminism was oriented around the station of middle- or upper-class white women and involved suffrage and political equality. Second-wave feminism attempted to further combat social and cultural inequalities. The third wave is going on today and not in the 1980's.

Latino Movement

The Latino movement(also known as the Chicano movement) was a civil rights movement extending the Mexican American Civil rights Movement of the 1960's with the stated goal of achieving Mexican American empowerment. It encompassed a broad cross section of issues, from restoration of land grants, to farm workers' rights, to enhanced education, to voting and political rights, as well as emerging awareness of collective history. Socially, the Chicano Movement addressed negative ethnic stereotypes of Mexicans in mass media and the American consciousness. The Latino Movement had been beginning since the Spanish American war back in the 1840's. It gained momentum shortly after World War 2.

Native American Movement

The Native Indian Movement(also known as the Native American Movement) was a Native Indian Advocacy group formed in 1968. It was a group looking for more rights as they did not think they had that many. The majority of people did not treat them well. Even the U.S. Government did not treat them well. AIM was looking to improve these things and stop the discrimination. There had been cases of police harassment, and racism across the U.S. They now have accomplished some of these goals.
