Title IX is the landmark legislation enacted in 1972 that establishes gender equity in schools, whether in academics or athletics. It states: “No person in the U.S. 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 aid.” This Educational Amendment to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 furthered progress toward the goal of making sure all Americans, regardless of gender, are given equal opportunity to pursue a good education, to compete in the athletic arena, and to enter any profession for which they are qualified.
