Civil Rights Movement and the Equal Rights Movement In The U.S. In America, the black and women have found their backs against the wall for ages. It has been  a long hard road to success for both groups. Although they fight for two different things the basic  principles of which they argue for are similar. Women and blacks alike have been economically  suppressed and social outcast in earlier American society.  They were not held as equals in the white  man’s eye. Also, as a result of this, they faced much discrimination.  Although they both experienced  discrimination against them, the way in which they were discriminated upon varied.  The movements  also reached the pinnacle of their movement with captivating events that caused the U.S. to come to  its senses, and recognize equality. The Civil Rights Movement along with the Equal rights movement  never let down until they accomplished the goals that they set out to achieve in the beginning. Economic depression in black culture was inherently apparent but never thoroughly  challenged until the Civil Rights Movement. Blacks were given second class citizenship in the U.S.  even after the abolitionist movement. The Civil Rights Movement aimed to change that.  Blacks were  not given the same opportunities as whites.  They were forced to go to segregated schools, not  allowed in certain places, forced to sit in certain areas, and generally put down by society.   Blacks
