Signs of the times are shown here, as about 150 women marched through downtown St. Louis and visited the Mayor’s office as part of women’s liberation demonstration on the 50th Anniversary of ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment, giving women the right to vote. The women carried signs supporting legalized abortions, children’s day care centers, revolution, and passage of equal rights amendment by Congress.
