Among the legal questions still swirling around Penn State, one has drawn little attention but could pose a threat to the university: Did the school’s handling of sex abuse allegations against assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky violate the federal Title IX gender discrimination law?
As we celebrate these women’s victories we must remember that Title IX created the opportunities for women to succeed in sports. When progressives push for public policy changes, that is what we seek: not guaranteed outcomes but guaranteed access.
Women deserve to play sports. Heck, they should as much as possible. Fiscally possible, that is. The WNBA just is not, and it’s time the big boys and everyone else accepts that.
A women’s group has filed a complaint against the Chicago Public Schools, claiming boys have more opportunities to play sports than girls.
