Title IX: Defined, Refined, and Intertwined

Screenshot 100914 124535 PM

While most of us are aware of Title IX, not everyone knows how much this law has and continues to evolve.

Enacted in 1972, Title IX of the Education Amendments was originally administered by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. The law prohibited discrimination on the basis of sex for any activities in any institution that received federal funding of any kind. Although originally seen as an “equality in athletics initiative,” the broad language of the law left it open to interpretation and revision then and even now.

What legislators could not have predicted was the reach of Title IX, and how many people are now under its protection. We’ve created a cross-section of this ever-changing law’s history and how it occasionally conflicts with other legislation.
