Title IX

The latest news about Title IX, a portion of the Education Amendment of 1972 that includes language prohibiting discrimination based on sex. Since Title IX was passed, millions of female athletes have participated in sports programs in high school and college, while the college graduation rate for women has increased by 40%.
