The 1960s was a time of protests to fight for social reform and equal rights. Young Americans spoke out against racial disparities and the lack of women's rights. American values in the 1960s changed from a conservative and subdued America to one that fought for change. Activism grew as many participated in protests to demand racial equality as well as to protest the Vietnam War. Young Americans rejected the stable, comfortable middle-class life their parents had created following WWII. Instead, they were driven by a spirit of rebellion. These radical social and political movements focused on fighting for civil rights, opposing the Vietnam War, and preserving the environment.
