In June of 1972, President Nixon signed the Education Amendments Act of 1972, which included Title IX, prohibiting sexual discrimination in any institution receiving federal funding. Today, it is best known as the amendment that grants women and girls equal opportunities to participate in high school and college athletics.
Few knew just how consequential Title IX would be. In just 37 words, Title IX launched a revolution in women’s sports.
