This paper presents a review of the literature on Title IX, the regulatory policy to end sex discrimination in publicly funded schools with respect to athletics. The paper details the findings of several studies and concludes that Title IX is both controversial and difficult to implement.
From the Paper:"In 1972, the U.S. Congress passed into law, Title IX, a regulatory policy to end sex discrimination in publicly funded schools with respect to athletic affairs. Since its inception, Title IX has been reaffirmed and modified (Rhoads, 2004). Te purpose of Title IX was to provide relief to individuals suffering from some form of exclusion or discrimination and the law is therefore positioned within the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as an adjunct to Title VII of that Act. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 addressed the rights of all individuals, regardless of sex to participate in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance.
"With the full weight of the federal government behind it, most individuals erroneously believe that the inequity women had faced in athletics was eliminated (Whisenant, 2003). As this review of literature will demonstrate, though Title IX has resulted in some significant improvements in the treatment of women athletes in the educational system, it has not succeeded in eliminating all vestiges of discrimination and inequities."
