The 1960s brought along important and beneficial changes to America, especially changes regarding gender roles and race relations. Even after World War II and the increasing tensions between the United States and Russia and Vietnam, America’s culture was changing faster than before. During the 1960s, gender roles changed for the better and race relations improved significantly. The role of women in the 1960s changed after centuries of little to no freedom. However, women gained freedom during World War II and a sense of equality between the genders grew throughout the late 1900s.

Today women and men right are equal in the United States of America. Imagine if men made all the rules. It was like this when the United States was founded in 1776. Women were not allowed to vote until the 1920s. Women took care of their children and usually remained at home.
A federal judge in Texas temporarily blocked a directive allowing students to use bathrooms and locker rooms as per their gender identity. The ruling was pronounced before schools are scheduled to open for the next academic year. Texas and 11 other states had sued the Department of Education and Department of Justice over the directive which extends the Title IX law to interpret restrictions over bathroom use in accordance with birth genders as sexual discrimination.

Leading Women Sports Administrators - A Survey study Introduction Throughout the course of history women have had to fight for a place in society. Women have had fewer legal rights and career opportunities than men over the past hundred years. A woman’s main role has always been to be a wife, and then to be a mother. Women have been conventional for years as being the less intellectual and weaker sex (Cohen & Huffman, 2007). The sports industry has never been an overly inviting environment for females.
As mentioned in the previous paragraph, sports and the culture that surrounds them almost certainly reflect each other. This is especially apparent in the 1970s when there were many changes in the ideals and mindsets of people all around the world, and we can observe in retrospect how these changes affected sports in that same decade.

Before Title IX, women’s only physical activities were cheerleading and square-dancing, and athletic budgets were focused on men and only men. Since Title IX was signed, things have obviously changed to the better
