At 40, Title IX still is maturing
from Chicago Tribune
As Title IX went into effect four decades ago, athletic gear, upgraded facilities and even transportation considered standard in 2012 were the signs of dramatically changing times. The 1972 law, celebrating its 40th anniversary, ensured equal education and opportunities regardless of sex in federally funded institutions. It is known best for ushering in sweeping progress to women's athletics. But as the country marks the milestone and women across the country are recounting their days as pioneers, they acknowledge there is work to be done.
