A Landmark Celebration

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) is a federal law that ensures, No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
