Title Nine - 40 Years 40 years ago Congress signed landmark legislation, Title IX, attacking the gender divide in sports. Today that divide has been virtually erased. In 1972, only 30,000 girls participated in high school sports. Today it's over 3,000,000!! Because many of us here at Title Nine, including our founder, were there in the early years, we think there's a lot to celebrate this year.
