1996: The Citadel votes to admit women, ending a 153-year-old men-only policy at the South Carolina military school. The decision came following a U.S. Supreme Court decision striking down a similar policy at Virginia Military Institute. The Citadel had originally fought a three-year battle started by Shannon Faulkner, who was admitted in 1995 under a judge's order but quit in less than a week. The school would graduate its first female cadet, Nancy Ruth Mace, in May 1999.
