Title_IX_610_300_s_c1_center_center.jpeg

In 1972, Congress passed Title IX, the landmark legislation that guaranteed no person could, on the basis of sex, be denied participation in any education program that receives Federal assistance. In the 40 years since, women have made great strides in reaching equality with men, especially in athletics. However, there is still controversy surrounding Title IX. We discuss the law's impact and future.
