If the social pressure generated by unanimity is so strong for those questions for which the solution can be found just by looking, we can easily imagine that it is even greater for justice issues that require some reflection.
Once a claim demanding the abolition of a practice is heard in society, the consensus on the legitimacy of that situation is broken. It begins to be perceived as problematic, making it easier for others to refuse to comply with the majority and to also support the abolition of the practice.
Therefore, one can understand that by expressing and making visible the claims that create a public debate in the society, social movements take full advantage of the beneficial effect caused by the act of breaking the unanimity on a situation.
