Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 fundamentally reshaped the country, prohibiting discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity that receives federal funding. Once considered a feminist triumph, Title IX leveled the educational field for women, allowing them educational, athletic, and career opportunities never before possible. Best known for its applications to sports and sexual harassment, the law covers a wide range of American education at both the K-12 and secondary level.

But on the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the Biden administration is poised to eviscerate long-standing protections for women and girls by expanding “sex” to include sexual orientation and gender identity. Schools would be forced to open housing, locker rooms, sports teams, admissions, and other sex-specific offerings to the opposite sex. And this is just one of the changes the Biden administration has proposed with its new rule.

Join us as a panel of experts and advocates discusses how the gains of the women’s movement and women’s equality and opportunity are teetering on the brink of erasure, and hear strategies for fighting back.
