The High School Girl Athlete's Share in the Future.
Bundy, Ola M.
In this speech, the assistant executive secretary of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA), talks about how female athletes have been discriminated against in the past, and then discusses how athletic directors are seeking to compensate for that now. She mentions statistics of girls' participation in interscholastic sports between 1970 and 1975, a time in which participation multiplied several times. She praises both women coaches and women who volunteer to officiate at games. She refers to Title IX, but suggests that it is not that law but the efforts of women who have been trying to upgrade girls' sports, that has led to the existence of fine athletic programs for girls.
