Title IX 50th Anniversary

Women’s sports in the U.S. received a huge boost 50 years ago.

That’s when a law known as Title IX (nine) was passed.

It banned schools that receive federal funding from discriminating on the basis of sex.

Since then, plenty of progress has been made in woman’s athletics, but more work remains.
