In the year of 1972 an amendment was made to to help educational schemes and sports activities for women. This law is called Title IX. This gave women equal opportunities as men in all sports and activities that get funding from the government. The actual law states “No person in the US shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in being denied the benefits of or being subjected to discrimination under any education program of activity receiving federal financial assistance." Many people have realized that there school did not treat girls and boys equally. They went to court to argue that women were not equally treated or getting the same things as men. Many of them lost the case. Because of Title IX was created and now makes equally chances, opportunities, and benefits for men and women.
