Walter Mondale

Women students holding "Mondale/Ferraro" signs show their support for Mondale

Women students turned out in force to show their support for the 1984 Democratic presidential candidate, Walter Mondale.

When he came to campus in 1984, the Democratic presidential candidate Walter “Fritz” Mondale was greeted by cheering students, and especially by WashU’s female students: Mondale chose the first woman, Geraldine Ferraro, as his running mate, and supported the Equal Rights Amendment.
