In the almost 40 years since the passage of Title IX, the federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs, there have been significant increases in sports participation for women and girls at all levels. Many advances have been made for girls and women in sport, but equity has yet to be achieved.

In honor of Women’s History Month, the Women’s Studies program along with the Southwest Collection Special Collections Library will host this informal discussion. Guest speaker Judi Henry, Ed. D., Senior Associate Director of Athletics and Jody Roginson, Internal Communications Director and Instructor in Department of Mass Communications, will speak to the history of Title IX and the influence the law continues to have on girls and women in all levels of academia.

With an increased focus on the Title IX anniversary by media, government officials, sports organizations, constituent groups, and individuals in higher education, we believe this event will inform the community of current day discussions about the impact this groundbreaking law still has on us today.

Inspired by the National Women’s History Project 2012 Theme: “Women’s Education – Women’s Empowerment”, this event will provide insight into how institutions pursue compliance, establish dialogue for best practices and recognize the impact of the law on women’s experience in pursuit of education.

What does Title IX say?

"No person in the United Stated shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal assistance." - Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act, also known as the Patsy T. Mink Equality Opportunity in Education Act
