07.03 SWBS Chart and Reflection

The "Somebody-Wanted-But-So" chart is an excellent way to summarize important information from history. In it, you identify a person or group of people, their goal, need, or want, what conflict of interest stood in the way, and the outcome. This strategy works great because history depends on the needs, wants, and actions of humans.

Part 1 – Complete the following chart using information from the lesson. One example appears for you. 

SWBS Chart

Somebody ...

Wanted ...

But ...

So ...

Betty Friedan

To understand why many women her age were discontent despite material comfort and family

The mainstream media did not acknowledge that women in the 1950s had any reason to be unhappy, unless they had ambitions outside the home

Friedan surveyed many young wives and mothers and wrote The Feminine Mystique, which helped bring attention to the issue of women's lack of opportunity and rights


 Equal rights as men

 The men thought that women should stay home and take care of their families.

  The women, like Betty Friedan, protested and took the problem to the court.

Native Americans

 Their land back

 The men keep taking their land and selling it for money. This left the Native Americans not have shelter or a food supply

 They formed the National Congress of American Indians

Hispanic Americans

 The same rights and possibilities as Americans

 They lacked protection from the police, better schools, and good jobs

 Cesar Chaves made the United Farm Workers (UFW) in 1962. It still is running to this day.

Part 2 – Answer the following questions in a complete paragraph of your own words.

What advances did the Women's Rights Movement make in the 1960s and 1970s? How was the movement similar to those of the Mexican Americans and Native Americans?

The Women’s Rights Movement gave the women more rights obviously. They got the right to divorce, get the same pay as men, ect. They fought for what they believed in. This movement was similar to those of the Mexican Americans and Native Americans because they also fought for what they believed in and eventually got what they wanted. In my opinion, everyone should get the same rights as. No one is better than another person, we are all equal.
