The NBA continues to gain popularity, while the WNBA struggles to still be known.

There will always be those who question how much of Title IX is actually responsible for these changes. The simple fact is that society is growing toward the idea of accepting females as athletes. Two professors at Emerita, Brooklyn College confirm the belief that “Increased participation and skill development by young women along with society 's greater acceptance of female athleticism has made sport a vital part of the lives of many young women and their families” (Acosta and Carpenter). Title IX has been a major catalyst when it comes to societal acceptance. The law influences people to accept the idea that women should have the same opportunity involving athletics as men have; it creates a guideline for our society that will result in the adaptation of a new societal norm.

While the game played by men and women have the same goal, scoring to win, the sport of men’s and women’s lacrosse is incredibly different making it difficult to compare. From an outsider’s perspective, it may appear as if the only difference is the gender. However, when examining the rules, there are more differences than similarities such as the equipment used, the protective gear worn and the amount of physical contact allowed. These are just a few of many of the differences.
