Civil Rights

Haymarket and Strikes
Strikes are valid methods of changing working conditions and should not be opposed by any level of government UNLESS laws are broken or people hurt as a result.

Women's Rights Voting and Citizenship
Citizenship is based upon suffrage and that was what all Civil Rights movements were based upon. That one vote for an idividual. In itself it may not be that powerful but give half the population a vote it makes a huge difference. Beyond that one vote more influence may be attainned by sharing your ides with others.

I Have A Dream
The speach was important in keeping the movement non-violent and dignifies but at the same time made clear that they would settle for nothing short of equallity.
