The Political Reforms
All male citizens become equal before the law. To be a citizen means that you have the freedom of religion, speech, the right to vote, and you have natural rights. The Monarchy's power becomes limited. This means that it wasn't just the Monarch that has a say in everything. The Legislative Assembly makes laws. This evens out the estates so that the Third wasn't so poor compared to the First and Second. All tax-paying male citizens have the right to elect members of the Legislative Assembly. This is so you had a reason to vote. You pay taxes, you vote. Simple as that!
