Day 9: Words of Wisdom from the Front Lines of Title IX
Today marks the 40th Anniversary of Title IX, an Amendment that revolutionized the fields of opportunity for women. While the athletic implications of the law may have been an afterthought, Title IX’s impact on female athletes has become the most significant aspect of that legislation. There is not a woman or girl in this country who has not felt the impact of Title IX, and we want to hear from you!
Were you fighting to play before Title IX passed? Were you there when it happened or are you a beneficiary of the aftermath? We’re paying our respects to the Constitutional guardian of smelly gyms, taped ankles, and freshly chalked fields. So bring on those fuzzy photos and words of wisdom. We want to know how Title IX has changed your world for the better. Remember, no experience is too small. Don’t wait, get entered>
