Title IX delivers a complete look at one of sport’s critical gender equity issues. It goes beyond intercollegiate athletics to address Title IX in the context of sport, physical activity, recreation, intramurals, and physical education.

From its enactment in 1972, Title IX has been often oversimplified or misunderstood by both advocates and critics of the legislation. Knowledgeable in the legal issues of sport and experienced in the administration of sport and physical education programs, the authors of Title IX offer a balanced, comprehensive view of this issue, lending important insights into Title IX’s requirements and application both now and when it was enacted.

Title IX, the law, prohibits any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance from discriminating on the basis of sex. Title IX, the text, helps to clarify the law in a three-part progression that is accurate and accessible. In Part I, you will see Title IX’s structure and requirements applied in different settings including physical education, intramurals and recreation, and athletics. Part II then provides a historical account of the social, legislative, and judicial environments in which Title IX has grown to maturity over the past three decades. Finally, part III examines Title IX in the 21st century, its impact on sport related programs, and continuing debates.

Title IX will also help you gain a solid understanding of the law itself. You will examine the actual wording of the law and related interpretive materials. You’ll review significant lawsuits as you explore how the legislation has been interpreted and judicially clarified over the years in changing social and political climates. You’ll find further clarifying information in summaries and questions and answers at the end of each chapter. Six appendixes provide pertinent excerpts from Title IX regulations, policy interpretations, letters of clarification, and an annotated list of other print and online resources.

Whether you’re looking for clarification of Title IX or for information on applying it in your programs, you’ll find the information you need in Title IX.
