Title IX turned 36 this week
Monday, June 23rd, marked the 36th anniversary of Title IX, the federal law that bans sex discrimination in schools that receive federal funding. Many, including feminists and left-wing politicians, applauded this historical date. But Allison Kasic, director of the R. Gaull Silberman Center for Collegiate Studies at the Independent Women's Forum, in an op-ed in today's Christian Science Monitor, believes you should take a closer look at the legacy of Title IX. Allison examines the unintended negative consequences the legislation has had on men and on gender equality in general.
