GRADUATION DAY AT WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY IN ST. LOUIS

Washington University graduating Arts and Sciences students (L to R) Jonathan Kleiman, Mark Kizelshteyn, Jeremy Thomas and Jeff Binder show off their white arm bands, protesting the conferring of a honorary degree to conservative political analyst Phyllis Schlafly at Washington University in St. Louis on May 16, 2008. Schlafly, who once criticized women that participated in the work force, had a couple hundred students and faculty members stand and turn their backs as she accepted the award.
