    Today there is no national organizations or professional groups for any Women’s Movement. There are groups women can be apart of, as well as men, that support the rights of women and their progress. Although, there is Feminist organizations which have newspapers, and group meetings that discuss the goals they want women to reach. Feminists are more likely to join groups that are anti-globalization, social justice or anti-corporate groups.

    These groups have basically gained the power that they need. Comparing 2012 to the 1960's has a dramatic change. Women can now vote, they don't always have to stay at home and do chores, women can gain a steady paycheck, and can support themselves and their family which is something they have never imagined. All women today still face certain problems and most women are targets, because that is how it has always been and they are seen to be weak compared to men. In the long run, the movements of the 60's have accomplished their goals.

    {imagine.jpg} (Islandvintage)
    This picture of a psychedelic colored peace sign with bubble letters spelling, “imagine,” represents not only the drug use and creative art of the 60’s hippie’s movement, but the idealistic dream of peace as well. In the 60’s, hippie’s stood for anti-war and they were all about making peace with the world and being unique and different. They often started large groups (such as Woodstock) of music and art being represented to express the times; often about anti-Vietnam protests or weed, acid, and other drugs shown throughout inspirational, psychedelic art.

They wore colorful clothing, ragged jeans and military clothing. They would also integrate Native American accessories and ornaments into their clothing. Hippies often grew out their hair and beards, to them this mean they had their own freedom and that they could do what ever they wanted to.

    {http://sixties-social-movements-3.wikispaces.com/site/embedthumbnail/placeholder?w=252&h=151} Hippies were usually involved in things such as “Rock n’ Roll” and wearing extremely colorful clothing, but the number one thing they usually messed around with was the illegal use of drugs. Hippies would smoke marijuana and use the drug called LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide), which was a strong hallucinogenic drug. They saw the use of LSD as a “Liberating” substance that would help find their own inner peace.

    This page goes more in depth about the Hippie movement and provides links to other pages explaining exactly what everything mentioned is. Here, we see that the Hippie movement was more than just a bunch of young, drug-users. Hippies were also anti-war activists who participated in marches and protesting with various signs such as the peace sign and statements like “Make love, not war.” They also had a massive impact on the musical world. Groups like The Beatles and Jefferson Airplane, and singers like Jimi Hendrix and Bob Dylan are still known and loved by many people around the nation today.

    Conclusion:
    After all these years, people may say that the hippie counter culture has disappeared. However, it has not; because of all the protesting and demonstrating people now are encouraged to express themselves and be more nonconformist than ever. Today you can still find communes filled with people who share the same beliefs as hippies. Still, people believe that hippies aren’t what our society needs when our society wouldn’t be what it is without the counter culture movement. With all the creativity now in society, it’s safe to say that the counter culture completed their goal. People aren’t ridiculed for standing away from the crowd, people speak out against war, and many people have taken to the habit of expressing themselves through music, art, and many others.

    Primary Documents
    The United Farm Workers is Born
    Cesar was willing to sacrifice his own life so that the union would continue and that violence was not used. Cesar fasted many times. In 1968 Cesar went on a water only, 25 day fast. He repeated the fast in 1972 for 24 days, and again in 1988, this time for 36 days. What motivated him to do this? He said, Farm workers everywhere are angry and worried that we cannot win without violence. We have proved it before through persistence, hard work, faith and willingness to sacrifice. We can win and keep our own self-respect and build a great union that will secure the spirit of all people if we do it through a rededication and recommitment to the struggle for justice through nonviolence (The United Farm Workers is born).
    This passage from the UFW official web page shows what this movement meant to one of the leaders, the late Cesar Chavez. Chavez put his life because he wanted to try to get a reaction. Chavez, like Martin Luther King Jr., believed in non-violent protests. Chavez showed multiple times that he was willing to go to extensive measures in order to produce the results that he wanted. His long period fasts are good examples of his willingness, as he would go for over three weeks with only water. The Chicano movement meant a great deal to the Hispanic-American society.
    History of the Brown Berets
    On March 1, 1968, the Brown Berets planned and participated in the East L.A. �walk outs� or �blow outs�, the largest and lengthiest in the history of California, in which thousands of students left their classrooms to join the protest for quality education. The Brown Berets were able to unite college and high school students and begin a new stage in the Chicano/a movement. Shortly, after this event, other Chicano students led �walk outs� all over the Southwest.
    The Brown Berets were a group of Chicanos who wanted to get a higher level of education that of what was being offered to them. In order to protest they organized walkout. During these walkouts, they would literally walk out of their schools. This group felt that they were being discriminated against since they weren't given the educational level that they felt that they deserved. This was another form of nonviolent protest that was being practiced often throughout this movement.

    III. Conclusion
    The current problems Hispanic-Americans are facing today are that they are mostly at the bottom of the economy.
