Storyboard Text

  • In our topic we are doing protest in the 1960's. 
  • First we are going to talk about the civil rights movement.
  • Before that king was imprisoned because he joined in on a sit-in and he wrote his famous letter. That was on April 16, King writes his famous "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" in which he responds to eight white Alabama ministers who urged him to end the protests and be patient with the judicial process of overturning segregation.There were a lot more protests throughout 1960.
  • The civil rights movement is a long debate about how African americans should be treated and have the same rights. There were several protest throughout 1960’s. The main one was  On Aug. 28, the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom is held in D.C. Around 250,000 people participate, and King delivers his legendary "I Have a Dream" speech. 
  • First we are going to talk about the civil rights movement.
  • The Feminine Mystique. Betty Friedan’s 1963 book is often remembered as the beginning of the second wave of feminism in the United States. The success of The Feminine Mystique did get a lot of people to start paying attention. 
  • Consciousness Raising Groups. Called the “backbone” of the feminist movement, consciousness-raising groups were widespread and had the aura of a grassroots revolution. Protests. Feminists protested in the streets and at rallies, hearings, marches, sit-ins, legislative sessions, or even the Miss America Pageant… the opportunities were practically endless. 
  • Womens Liberation Groups Groups sprang up across the United States. Two early groups on the East Coast were New York Radical Women and Redstockings. Use of Contraceptives. In 1965, the Supreme Court in Griswold v. Connecticut found a right to marital privacy that permitted married couples to legally use birth control. With new technologies for birth control, this soon led to many single women also using contraceptives, and a freedom from worrying about pregnancy changed the relationship of many young women to sex and sexuality.  In 1960, the federal government approved use of a birth control pill.  Lawsuits for Equal Pay. Feminists went to court to fight for equality, stand up against discrimination, and work on the legal aspects of women's rights.The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission was instituted to enforce equal pay.  Stewardesses -- soon to be renamed flight attendants -- fought wage and age discrimination, and won in a 1968 ruling. Fighting for Reproductive Freedom. Feminist leaders and medical professionals - men and women - spoke out against restrictions on abortion. During the 1960s, cases such as Griswold v. Connecticut, decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1965, helped paved the way for Roe v. Wade.The First Women's Studies Department. Feminists looked at how women were depicted or ignored in history, social science, literature and other academic fields, and by the end of the 1960s a new discipline was born: women's studies, as well as the formal study of women's history.  Opening Up the Workplace. In 1960, 37.7 percent of American women were in the workforce. In 1960, most women worked in "pink collar" jobs, with professional jobs as teachers, secretaries, and nurses. Only 6% of doctors were women, and 3% of lawyers; not even 1% of engineers were women.  Few women were accepted in the trades.When the word "sex" was added to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, it opened the way for many lawsuits against discrimination in employment.
