Title IX--Its Impact.
Gerou, Nancy
Fear, judgements, and violence have characterized discrimination throughout history. In sex discrimination, both sexes have a responsibility to fight discriminatory attitudes. Women should retain their distinctly feminine characteristics while at the same time being provided the same opportunities as men of equal ability. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 forbids discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities which receive federal funds. This is especially applicable to intramurals. Identical programs and totally coeducational teams are not required as long as comparable opportunities to participate in sports programs exist. Institutions have until July 21, 1976 to evaluate their athletic programs and implement the principles of nondiscrimination by sex. Equal opportunity includes everything from equipment to coaching to publicity. The most important aspect of a responsible intramurals program is to be sensitive to what the particular students at an institution at a particular time want and are interested in. In intramurals men and women must learn to cooperate in each other's best interests. (CD)
