  • Estates General/Tennis Court Oath
  • The Storming of the Bastille
  • Abolishing the Feudal System
  • The Third Estate felt they were not getting the rights they deserved. So, the members took it into their own hands and met in an indoor tennis court often to discuss their rights and to feel belonging. The estate even invited the other two estates to join, and they accepted. Thus, creating a sense of harmony and community. - May-June 1789
  • The Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizens
  • Many of the French attacked the Bastille and went to get the gun powder that was hidden inside. They tore down the walls, brick by brick... literally.
  • The Women's March on Versailles
  • After the French attacked the Bastille, the Third Estate went against the First and Second Estates. The National Assembly reacted to the outrage of the peasants by abolishing the feudal system and all of the laws and customs that came with it.
  • The Constitution of 1791
  • Equality.
  • Many believed that the fault to see mens rights was the sole purpose of why France was in terrible situations. So, the government came up with a series of laws to support every man/citizen in hope of keeping France civil and strong again.
  • Woman took it on themselves to march to the Bastille with pitch forks and weapons and go after King Louis. The king had been the reason they were starving because he used tax money and the people could not get supplies for flour/bread.
  • Finally, after all the citizens of France had gone through, a constitution stated from the government gave them fair rights and power.
