A group of graduating seniors stand and turn their backs as conservative political analyst Phyllis Schlafly is awarded with a Doctor of Humane Letters Honorary degree during commencement ceremonies 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.
