Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is often credited with explosive growth in the numbers of girls and women playing sports, which has had many secondary effects on gender relations in the broader society. Title IX’s supporters argue that the law has been unusually effective in promoting gender equality. And yet, Title IX remains a highly controversial law, often blamed for cutbacks to men’s sports and for putting added financial burdens on schools to fund sports programs which may detract from other educational priorities. It is an area of law that invites critical inquiry into methods of statutory interpretation, competing theories of equality, and law’s relationship to social change.
