Celebrate 45 Years!
Friday, June 23, marks the 45th anniversary of Title IX, the federal statute that prohibits sex discrimination in education. The law has opened classroom doors, laboratories, and playing fields to millions of women and girls since its passing. AAUW highlighted the findings of a new report, Title IX: Advancing Opportunity through Equity in Education, at a Capitol Hill briefing June 23.
Title XI, in all of its varied focus areas (sexual harassment and violence, STEM, and athletics) is likely to be a focus of both the AAUW Prescott Public Policy group and AAUW Arizona this year. Members can join a Twitter conversation on Title IX at #TitleIXat45.
