What is Title IX?
Title IX states that no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded form participation in, be denied benefit or, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. It is more than just “the law that made school sports more equitable for girls and women.” Title IX also prohibits sexual harassment, which includes acts of sexual violence, as a form of sex discrimination.
