The Mexican Revolution began in 1910 as a response to the failed land reform policies of Mexico's president, Porfirio D??az. As charismatic revolutionaries such as Pancho Villa led the poor to action, the revolution came to encompass many other issues, including the separation of Church and State, improving education, ensuring voting rights for all Mexicans, protecting workers' rights, and ending foreign involvement in Mexican affairs. In the aftermath of the revolution???which subsided after the creation of a new Mexican constitution in 1917???many Mexicans enjoyed voting rights for the first time. With their newfound power, they worked hard to unite and to fulfill the goals of the revolution. Yet in the twenty-first century, many of the problems that led to the revolution of the early 1900s persist. Follow the dramatic story from Porfirio D??az's failed land reform programs and the assassinations of numerous Mexican presidents to the creation of the 1917 Constitution, whose goals are yet to be fully attained.
