50 years of Title IX: A look at ‘a notable first step’ toward a more equitable playing field for women and girls
This week marks the 50th anniversary of Title IX’s passage in 1972.

VCU News spoke with four Virginia Commonwealth University experts, including Carrie LeCrom, Ph.D., executive director of the Center for Sport Leadership at the School of Business, about the impact Title IX has had on the American public.
