HUMP DAY : TITLE IX IS NOT JUST SPORTS

In an article on accuracy.org Joanne Smith says, “I benefitted from Title IX opening up college athletics to many women and girls. However, as noted this aspect is just a small part of what it did.” Most people know that Title IX covers equality within sports, but there is much more to it than that.
The Title IX act deals with sexual harassment, sexism in the workplace, and overall inequality. In this article, 3 women discuss their experiences with Title IX and the different ways it can benefit women, and even men. It clarifies how important Title IX still is and how sexism is a prevalent issue today. It is important for all of us to realize that we have not yet achieved equally among the sexes and that Title IX is a good way to help bridge the gap.
