Q: Another front-running issue of the ’60s centered on women’s rights. In 1964, women were required to be in their residence halls by 11 p.m., while men were free to roam as they wished. In 1967, what prompted a change to this policy?

A: In May of 1967, 2,500 people protested the policy by “staying out late,” and as an ultimate result of that, the curfew for women was changed to midnight on weekdays and 2 a.m. on weekends.
