“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
These thirty-seven words are the Title IX clause of the 1972 Federal Education Amendments. Although Title IX applies to all activities and programs, it has received the most attention for its impacts on athletics, especially at the collegiate level.
