This world, throughout the entirety of its complicated history and continuous evolution, has been a witness to numerous social movements, some of which widely revolutionary while some uniquely empowering. The people of the world have been constantly wound up in balancing the inequalities and short-comings of the society. Their efforts and perseverance have managed to shape the landscape a little better and in doing so, have gradually created a more inclusive, considerate and progressive society. Even though the functioning and approaches towards carrying out a movement have faced tweaks and changes, the basic essence of social movements is as relevant today as it had been before. This paper is an attempt towards understanding a social movement in its bare sense, addressing the theories related to these movements and uncovering the changes that these movements have undergone. It also attempts to express the psyche of the people involved in a social movement and the factors which inspire them to fight resolutely in order to realize their objective.
