it ain’t just about sports

did you know that title IX protects much more than equal opportunity in athletics? well even if you did, you should still read up to refresh your memory of the rights accorded to women in government-funding academic institutions!

the national women’s law center put that together, and asked us, as avid feminists, to pass it on to everyone we know. a prelude:

The National Women’s Law Center is excited to announce the release of its new guide, It’s Your Education: How Title IX Protections Can Help You. This easy-to-use tool provides information to students at all levels of education about their rights under Title IX to ensure that male and female students receive the education they deserve.  It’s Your Education lays out the key protections under Title IX and provides tips for students on what to do if they suspect that they are experiencing discrimination in school.

On June 23rd, 2010, we marked the 38th anniversary of the passage of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that bans sex discrimination in education. If you haven’t celebrated yet, consider reading this as your own personal partaayy.
