shows the movement of electrons

a \(\sf \color{red}{reaction ~mechanism}\) is basically the step by step sequence of it's elementary reactions. You can show the movement of electrons, but it doesn't necessarily involve showing electron pushing and such like they do in organic chemistry.

I was thinking in terms of organic chem lol

Yes, thats true, but a mechanism could also be something simple like the reaction of carbon monoxide gas with nitrogen dioxide gas: CO\(_{(g)}\) + NO\(\sf _2\) \(_{(g)}\) \(\rightarrow\) CO\(\sf _2\)\(_{(g)}\) NO\(_{(g)}\) Where there are several elementary steps in between such as the nitrogen dioxide first forming nitrogen trioxide, and then reacting with carbon monoxide gas, and so forth.

Organic chemistry isn't the only field that uses mechanisms.
