Women Have Made Gains Since the Enactment of Title IX, But the Job Is Not Finished

This year marks the 40th anniversary of Title IX, legislation that calls for equality of opportunity for women at the nation’s educational institutions. While most references in the press to Title IX concern women’s participation in athletics, the legislation requires equality of opportunity for men and women in all areas of education.

The National Coalition for Women and Girls in Education has published a 72-page booklet describing the progress that has been made since Title IX was enacted. The report covers women’s progress in athletics, STEM fields, and career and technical education. There are also chapters on single-sex education, sexual harassment and opportunities for pregnant students and students who are parents.

Readers interested in the report can download a copy here.
