Who did Title IX effect?
Title IX was written by Birch Bayh who served as a United StatesSenator from Indiana. President Nixon signed it into law in 1972.
The law states: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination und…er any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance..." . Title IX is most well-known for giving women an equal opportunity in collegiate sports as men. It prohibited sexual discrimination in colleges and universities that receive funds from the Federal Government.
becasue it was cool
The Title IX Amendment prohibits sexual discrimination ineducational institutions. The law protects any person on the basisof their sex from being excluded from participating …in educationalprograms or activities that receive financial assistance.
The consequence for failing to comply with Title IX is supposedlythe loss of federal funding, but the Department of Education'sOffice for Civil Rights has never taken funding …away from anycollege. The school usually is approached with a lawsuit and thenthreatened by the loss of federal funding.

President Richard M. Nixon signed the bill on June 23 but it wasn't put into action until it became law on July 1, 1972
Title IX only takes effect if the club is getting federal money.
President Nixon , June 23, 1972.
Title IX deals with college athletics in America. Prior to Title IX, the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) had not supported athletics for females on the same le…vel as it did for males. They funded male athletics on a far greater level than female athletics. Since the adoption of Title IX, there has been more even support of female athletics, both as to the dollar amount spent as well as the number of sports that it supports. Many colleges and universities have had to either institute similar sport teams for females or to drop support for the male version of that sport. So, while overall it has created more equity in athletics, it has also had a downside as those colleges/universities that could not support both male and female teams in a sport, would be forced to discontinue the support of the existing male sport. Hope this helps.
title IX, was a fail. it was suggested by some radical feminist, who had the right idea, about gender equility for sports (sports helping with scholarships) so that woman who …played sports could also achieve scholarships through sports. but... you know what, im only 14 so im gonna take this quote from this guy from yahoo. "Title IX has been miss used. It was supposed to give women's sports an equal opportunity. I take that to mean the same number of scholar athletes, but many interpret that to mean the same amount of money is spent on women and men. What has happened is many schools have dropped men's sports while adding women's sports such as crew and equestrian. Some want football canceled even though that is normally the one sport that makes money and funds the rest of the athletic program. There are schools that have dropped men's sports even though those sports were never a burden to the school, i.e. golf which was completely funded by private donations was dropped so the 6 men lost their scholarships at no savings to the school. I believe women should have an equal opportunity to sports, but not to the extent that men must suffer, especially since these people did not participate in past discrimination."
Title IX was intended a law; but in some cases the gender equity has not been met. Thousands of schools have not satisfied this law entirely. The act calls for equality of fed…eral and scholarships between genders in all government funded schools. This was a great advantage for women's rights but a large failure in overseeing the law, weak enforcement, and the resulting of elimination of many sports in schools.
Title IX is the well-known portion of the Education Amendments of1972 that were signed into law. Title IX prohibits discriminationon the basis of sex in any federally-funded e…ducation program oractivity. Along with other things, this paved the way forgirls/women to compete in school sports. Most currently, it has hitheadlines with the Obama administration's requiring schools toallow students use the rest room or locker room of their genderidentity.
