Various such movements, fought for specific social groups, working class, peasants, whites, aristocrats, and also for the protestants.
The movements of Twenty First Century which are also called the new movements are found to be dominant from the second half of the 20th century and cover the feminist movement, choice movements, civil rights movement, environmental movement, gay rights movement, peace movement, anti-nuclear movement, alterglobalization movement, etc. Generally the movements focus around which that go beyond and are not separate from class.
Various talks have been held in the way of discussions which have been generated on various topic of social networking and the effect it may play on the formation and mobilization of social movement.
