Title IX: Equality is the Law since 1972
Many people have never heard of Title IX.
Most people who know about Title IX think it applies only to sports, but athletics is only one of 10 key areas addressed by the law:
Since Title IX was passed 40 years ago, it has been the subject of over 20 proposed amendments, reviews, Supreme Court cases and other political actions. That's why we call it a living, breathing law. It is puzzling why there have been so many attempts to change Title IX since the intent of the law (gender equity) has not been met. Thousands of schools across the country are not in compliance with the law.^
