Manufacturing Equality Title IX, Proportionality, & Natural Demand
Citation: 105 Geo L.J. (2017)
In 1972 Congress enacted Title IX of the Education Amendments. Title IX prohibits discrimination based on sex in federally-funded educational institutions. Although the law is silent on the subject of athletics, over the years it has gained popular status as the law that made college sports accessible to women. Today, to achieve gender equity in the realm of college sports, schools that receive federal funding must show athletic participation that proportionally reflects their gender demographics.
