Attorney Patricia Bradley introduced her talk on Title IX to the Fayetteville NOW chapter by asking if we knew the only sport women could receive scholarships for prior to 1972. Field hockey? Nope. Gymnastics? Not that either. Only cheerleading!
Title IX is a comprehensive federal law which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex for any educational institution that receives federal funding, and requires compliance across any opportunities offered, from sports to classes to admission and scholarships. Ms. Bradley expounded on her role as Title IX Coordinator at Fayetteville State University, the process a claim goes through, and cited examples on claims and how the university has responded.
