Even though I think Title IX is fair to men and women some may disagree with me. They might say that since Title IX seems to be paying more attention to girls they tend to cut out equal rights for men such as playing sports.
Nowadays you see over more than 150,000 girls around the world are participating and are on sports teams, and the amount has risen dramatically since Title Ix became official. Men scholarships and women scholarships are incompatible, In 2007-2008 1.6% of men received athletic scholarships in relation to the 1.1% of women who received them, compared to 2.4% of men and 1.0% of women who received them in 1992-1993("Athletic Scholarships - Who Gets Them and How Many Are There) It's
The passing of this law saw all employees get treated equally, and the biases that existed ended. Its legislation led to the reduction in the rate of unemployment in organizations. Discrimination based on sex preferences has been the major challenge and this drove the women rights movement to stress for the legislation of the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (Aiken, Salmon, & Hanges, 2013.) Despite Title VII of the Civil Rights Act helping to alleviate the issue of discrimination especially on women in employment sectors, it did not meet all the needs of women in the
Many people do not know the law Title IX. Most people who have an idea of it think it only applies to women’s sports. Title IX, signed into law by President Richard M. Nixon, states that, “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex be excluded from participating in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance”. The word “sports” was not at all stated in the definition. It is just one of the many reasons why Title IX was passed. There is more to this law than to what meets the eye. Title IX has helped engage girls and women not only in athletics, but in education and other activities too.
Basketball has been in my blood since the third grade. I look up to the female high school and WNBA players. No matter the level of girls’ basketball, I was into it. As I grew up, I continued to play the game that I loved. But as the years passed by I noticed something: nobody was really ever at our games. Our parents were obviously there to support us, but other than that, no one else showed up. However, when I started to attend the boys’ games in high school, I took note of the fact that every seat was full. I was genuinely confused by this. They had an overall record of 1-19 by the end of the season while the girls’ team had a record of 18-4. Why were they getting all of the fame when we were having all of the success?
In the article titled Face-off on the playing field By, Judith B. Stamper explains girls have their own story of support or discrimination, success also the debate of girls be allowed to compete on boys’ sports team. First, the writer Title IX explains female athletes are been treated second-class for long enough and should pass of inequalities and biases of girls. The writer also clarifies that girls doing sports make them healthier, physically, and emotionally. Other girls that don’t play sports are less likely to use of drugs. In addition, she notes a former Stanford University basketball player Mariah says, strength and independence of things girls learn from sports, the opportunities that are changing women. Also, changing the way men
One of the biggest issues with NCAA sports is should college athletes be able to unionize and play. According to their website, The NCAA is an organization that represents over 1,100 colleges and universities from the Division 1, Division 2, and Division 3 Level (ncaa.org). In addition, The NCAA doled out more than $2.7 billion in athletic scholarships along with other resources, student-athletes can utilize (ncaa.org). Although the NCAA generates mass revenue, only the top programs are usually profitable while most schools operate at the institution cost (Mitchell & Edelman, 2013). I believe college athletes should not be unionized or paid to play college sports. If colleges were to be unionized and paying student-athletes, the money to pay
The Title IX is a law that requires all education programs, mainly sports, that are federally funded to have gender equality. In 1906 the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) was created for formatting and enforcing rules in men's football, but it soon became the ruling body for college athletics. The NCAA was great for men but not so much for women, women did not get athletic scholarships and there were no championships for women's teams. In 1972 the Title IX was signed by President Nixon and passed, allowing more women to join sports teams and get college degrees. Currently there are more than 2.6 million girl athletes in high school and more than 150,000 in college.

This had the greatest impact on females in sports. Its main goal was to spread equal amounts of funding through men and female’s sports. It would try and bring equal revenue into female sports and equal pay for the players and coaches. “Title IX compliance has been driven by lawsuits and threats of lawsuits. Although the law states that schools that violate Title IX will lose their federal funding, in thirty years no school has ever lost federal funding for not complying with Title IX” (Feminist Majority Foundation). Some arguments suggest how it puts down male athletes and their sports, but one statistic states how if a female is involved in a sport she will most likely be paid more than men. "The number of women playing college-level sports today is more than five times as high as it was in 1972. And the number of girls participating in high-school sports today has reached a record high of 3.27 million. About two in five girls participate in high-school varsity sports, according to the Women’s Sports
Equality is something that our country has been striving to achieve for centuries. From the 13th Amendment to the women’s suffrage movement, there has always been a battle to creating a balance society. Title IX is the new attempt to influence equality; this battle is between men’s and women’s athletic and educational opportunity. According to Cathryn Claussen, a director of the Sports Management program at Washington State University, comments that “prior to Title IX, only 295,000 girls played high school sports compared to 3.7 million boys.” We have all seen this trend since the Roman games in the colosseum; men competed center stage while women sat as spectators. Although, today you will see an unbelieveable change in pace. Women’s sports
Title IX was signed into law in 1972 and it required equality for male and female students in each educational program and activity that received federal funding. This means that universities had to offer sports that women could participate in. The reasons Title IX came into being was a demand from Women’s Rights organizations for equal opportunities.
The significance of the case is that parties seeking to uphold a statute that classifies individual’s gender must carry the burden of showing an "exceedingly persuasive justification" for the classification. Also, single-sex admissions policy of MUW 's School of Nursing cannot be justified on the ground that it compensates for discrimination against women. Therefore, constitutes educational
There 's been real growth in the number of women who participate in sports, receive scholarships, and benefit from increased budgets. There are more opportunities to compete at elite levels through competitions like the Olympics, World Championships and professional leagues. Opponents of Title IX claim that there is a negative impact on boys’ and men’s sports arising from attempts to increase opportunities for girls and women in athletics. These criticisms are based on misinterpretations of the law and are not supported by the facts. Title IX has revolutionized athletics as it continues to impact the world today. Before Title IX, women were given zero to none opportunities to participate in
Although over time gender discrimination has grown progressively over the years, one place that gender inequality is not fully present is in the sports world. Gender inequality in sports has been an issue in the industry for centuries. For years and years women faced the issues of lower pay, not as much publicity and not being appreciated as a female athlete. Clearly, even in this prevalent era of alleged equality and impartiality, most sports still remains as a male dominion, as there still is an unnoticed barrier between sport and woman. Through this analysis, I wanted to investigate some of the initial causes for the above circumstances.
The programs created by Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society aimed to improve the country by eradicating poverty and social injustice. The education system contributes to systematic oppression. A good education is crucial to gaining success in the United States; education is also very expensive and not always accessible to those who cannot afford it. With Ⅳ titles, the Higher Education Act (HEA) was established in September of 1965 as the first solution to the issue of accessibility. It provided the federal scholarships and started programs like Upward Bound and Talent Search to find needy students and give them the scholarships they required in order to attend a college or university. Before the HEA, little attention was given to making higher
