Letter from U.S. Senator Edward J. Gurney to Roxcy Bolton presenting the Women's Rights Day Proclamation signed by President Richard Nixon.
September 12, 1972
This proclamation came before the Equal Rights Amendment, which had failed to pass at this time. The proclamation was a small victory for Roxcy Bolton and other feminists in spite of the failure of the ERA.
