Strike Day
Date: 1970 Size: 421x470 pixels
On May 21, 1970, several hundred students cut classes, spent hours on the Haley Center concourse listening to anti-Vietnam War speakers, then marched to ROTC headquarters at Broun Hall and signed a telegram of protest to President Nixon.  That night, about 1,500 students demonstrated for women's rights.  The quest for fewer dormitory restrictions on coeds continued.  In 1976, the Board of Trustees abolished all curfews at women's dorms and authorized a plan for male visitations.
