Big Things You Forgot Happened In 1968
8. Linda LeClair Gets Expelled
Linda LeClair, a sophomore at Barnard College, was expelled from the university when they found out she was living with her boyfriend. This led to a revolution against double standard college rules that were imposed on women and not men. Shortly after, 40 women Barnard students in one dorm invited guys to stay the night in protest, which led to the end of in-dorm curfews for women, and the allowance for them to live off campus with whoever they wanted.
