On June 1, 1986 graffiti was found chalked in Dewing Hall. This photograph shows graffiti that read "GLSG + WIG = DEATH!!" The two student groups mentioned were the Gay and Lesbian Support Group (GLSG) and the Women's Interest Group (WIG). The GLSG was formed in 1983 and WIG in 1978 while the Women's Studies program at the college was created around 1980. The graffiti shows the opposition that both women and members of the gay and lesbian community faced at this time in their fight for equal rights.
