Title IX Gets National Attention

Following recent celebrations of the 25th anniversary of Title IX, the 1972 law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender in publicly-funded educational institutions, the Washington Post published an extensive feature on Sunday, July 6 on how women athletes at the University of Texas sued the university and gained more athletics opportunities for women. As a result of the lawsuit, the University of Texas agreed to provide equal funding and opportunities for women's and men's athletics, and will comply with this agreement this year.
