However it is a mental picture, Martin Luther King representing the black movement or Gandhi as the figurhead of the Indian non-violent independence movement, the 'leadership phenomenon' can not be reduced to a simple interaction between a leader and a social movement. Theoretically speaking, the structure of a movement holds with it, the kind of leadership it requires. Along with an analysis of the French anti-CPE movement, we will try and answer all the above questions, whereas the overall research question may be formulated as follows: did the leaders of the French anti-CPE movement interact with (its) their own structure and the environment to create the observed outcomes? The anti-CPE social movement started among students and reached little by little all the classes of the French population. As it started more as a 'feeling' of social injustice, it did not really include any leader at the very beginning.
