about this item
This book examines the passage and impact of Title IX up to the present day. The 1972 law requiring gender equity in educational programs receiving federal funding has had a transformative effect on American education. Elizabeth Kaufer Busch and William Thro evaluate the ways in which the interpretation and implementation of Title IX have evolved over time, as well as the specific effects of the law on women’s access to higher education, athletics, and protections from sexual harassment and assault. Combining legal and cultural perspectives, the book offers a balanced and insightful history of Title IX that will be useful to students interested in the history of gender, equality, and the law in the contemporary United States.
