These two Civil Rights movements are very much alike in that they wanted rights for a minority. They wanted to be able to vote, they wanted to be able to have the same paying jobs as the people that are "higher" than them. Once they started protesting against the government and the laws against them, people started realizing and the government eventually gave both of the minorities their Civil Rights. In my opinion, the African Americans was more successful in achieving their goals. They started out with nothing, and look where they are now. They have equal education, equal paying jobs, no segregation in public places, they can vote, and many more. Women also made out pretty well, but in my opinion, the African Americans got many more rights than the women did, and came farther in their fight.
