Games Yet To Be Played: Equity in Sport Leadership.
Thorngren, Connie M.; Eisenbarth, Barbara S.
Women's Educational Equity Act Publishing Center Digest, Jun 1994
This digest examines the status of girls' and women's athletics more than 20 years after the 1972 passage of Title IX of the Education Amendments to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits sex discrimination in education programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance. It notes trends in Title IX implementation, the impact of Title IX on athletes and coaches, the loss of female role models in sport leadership, attributes of coaches that influence their effectiveness, the need for a more supportive social climate for women coaches, and creating change for the future. An article by Chris Shelton titled "In Pursuit of Gender Equity: Programs Promoting Girls' and Women's Sport" describes two national and six state and community programs that have formed networks of support, political action, and education. "Title IX and Sports Medicine: The Rules of the Game" by Margaret C. Dunkle comments that the provision of medical and training services is one factor that the Office for Civil Rights considers in determining athletes' equal opportunity. A list of 10 organizations and 7 print materials concludes the digest. (JDD)
