Thank you to the women who organized and participated in the sit-in at the Yankee Doodle Tap Room at the Nassau Inn in Feb. 1970 to protest that the restaurant only served males at lunch.

Thank you to the women who, through the Women*s Center, moved to ban on-campus open public showings and sales of pornography in the 1980s. They endured rape jokes openly published in The Daily Princetonian by fellow students and pushback from organizations like Whig-Clio.
(The Daily Princetonian, Volume 107, Number 35, 24 March 1983)
Thank you to the women who suffered the horrors of harassment and still had the bravery to mobilize protests on Prospect Street — even after a car intentionally drove through one of their protests in the prior year.

Thank you to the women who attempted to try out for the hockey team but were barred due to “the possibility of damage to their reproductive organs.”

Thank you to the women who sought to join sports teams after the ECAC permitted women to join, despite discouragement by the University

Thank you to the women who rallied against the all-male Tiger Inn and Ivy eating clubs to demand the inclusion of women bickerees.
(The Daily Princetonian, Volume 109, Number 119, 21 November 1985)
Thank you to the women who founded the lightweight crew team and were later banned by the University from finding a volunteer full-time coach.
(The Daily Princetonian, Volume 99, Number 100, 15 October 1975)
Thank you to those who endured as Princeton attempted to disband the women’s lightweight crew team in its entirety despite the fact that Title IX had already been enacted to make gender-based discrimination illegal in college athletics.
(The Daily Princetonian, Volume 99, Number 101, 16 October 1975)
Thank you to the women who pushed back against being sexually objectified by Playboy Magazine when the publication attempted to recruit women on campus for their sexy “Ivy League Women” issue. Thank you to those who also protested outside the offices of The Daily Princetonian after it willingly ran an advertisement for Playboy.
(The Daily Princetonian, Volume 103, Number 6, 12 February 1979)
