Lecture 23: Social Movements Social Movements Definition: "Sustained challenges to existing holders of power in the name of a wronged population" (C- B, p. 364) Tend to represent a 'wronged' group: women, LGBTQ, people of colour, aboriginals The activities of social movements draw attention to the wronged group and the way they've been wronged, and attempt to draw people to their cause. Five Main Elements - required for social movements: 1 Sustained challenge - there needs to be repeated action challenging those in power over time (must demonstrate commitment to affecting change) 2 Challenge power holders - make sure those in power know that they have to do something to accommodate those seeking change 3 Wronged population - social movements represent a wronged population but are also composed of conscious community who are those that support the social movement and the wronged population 4 Unauthorized action - need to engage in actions that disrupt daily routines (strikes, sit-ins, etc.) 5

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
