The female athletes supported by AAUW in their Title IX suit against UC Davis will be the featured speakers at an AAUW Funds luncheon to be held on November 5 at the Burlingame Embassy Suites Hotel.
Reservations for the luncheon can be made in the AAUW Funds section of this website, under 2011 Funds Luncheons HERE.
Attorney Noreen Farrell reported the Court found in favor for the Title IX claim against the University, but let the individual UC officials off the hook for the constitutional claim. The Court was not supportive of the women wrestlers, but could not avoid the clear facts of the case showing a program-wide Title IX violation when they were students.
AAUW's support was very important in this case.
