  • The Tennis Court Oath
  • The Storming Of Bastille
  • Make sure the king remembers us!
  • The Decree Abolishing The Feudal System
  • Due to weather, the three estates were forced to meet in an indoor tennis court. The third estate called the first and second estate to demonstrate their own power. The tennis court oath was made, which essentially said that the three estates were to formally assemble until a constitution is constructed.
  • The Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen
  • The third estate had many guns, but no gun powder. They stormed this prison to get some, and not only for that. They sent a very clear message to the king. They aren't to be messed with.
  • The Women's March on Versailles
  • Women's Rights or DEATH!
  • What this would do is make it to where the three estates were equal in power, land, wealth, and voice. (Keep in mind women were still left in the dust).
  • The Constitution of 1791
  • This was almost like the constitution. It had its flaws however, and completely left out the rights of women.
  • Marie Gouze was executed for being thought of as counterrevolutionary for coming up with standards that are now in our society, a must. She started the revolution of women, and what the 2,000+ women did, was storm into the King and Queen's place, and forced them to sign for women's rights.
  • Finally, after all the raids and protests, France kicked out the King and Queen, a constitution was written according to everyone's pleasures, and there ended up being equal rights for everyone in France.
