There are three basic guidelines to Title IX that include equal amount of sport options, equal benefits and assistance, and finally equal distribution of scholarship money involving athletics ("The Battle For Gender Equity In Athletics In Colleges and Universities").

Securing freedom and equality is still an issue we see today, and within this fight the documents drafted to ensure our rights have always been under
