- Flashing forward to July 9, 1978, nearly 100,000 advocates of equal rights for women marched in Washington, D.C., many dressed in lavender.
- In October 1981, the NCADV observed a “Day of Unity,” and a majority of participants also chose to wear lavender or purple.
- In October 1987, the first Domestic Violence Awareness Month was observed, and again, purple-hued clothing was widely embraced by participants.
