Civil rights movements.
"While blacks led the way, Asians, Hispanics, women, gays, and the disabled benefited just as much from the civil rights movement. But if African-Americans could rely on powerful leaders and mass activism, the groups that followed in their footsteps won their powerful new rights not in the streets but through the work of bureaucrats, lawyers, and judges." (David L. Kirp, "The other civil rights movement," Boston Globe 8.24.03)
