Social movement
Some people come together to make a big group. They want to change something in the world or keep something the same. They work together to help people who do not have much power. Sometimes, they want to change rules or the way people live. They can talk, meet, or make new groups to share their ideas. People who study how groups work have many ideas about these big groups. They think about how these groups begin and how they can make new rules or parties. They also think about how long these groups work and how big they can get. A long time ago, when factories started and cities got bigger, these groups started to grow. In countries where people can speak freely, learn, and have some money, these groups can do more. Some groups from the past were against leaders from other places who were in charge. These big groups are very important for making rules fair in places where people choose their leaders.
