Title IX at 50: Progress Made and Challenges Ahead for Women’s Sports
On the 50th anniversary of the passage of Title IX, we will celebrate the significant strides made in women’s athletics and discuss the inequities that remain. Current and former competitive athletes will reflect on advancements since 1972, share their personal experiences, and consider the best ways to push forward.
