    Jul 3, 2014 | 34 min
    June 23 marked the 42nd anniversary of Title IX, an anti-discrimination law that's not only opened doors for women, but worked to eliminate discrimination in federally funded institutions nationwide.

While the other two prongs are allegedly equal for compliance, the Department of Education issued a clarification in 1996 calling proportionality a "safe harbor," meaning schools with similar ratios of male and female athletes to their student body would be viewed as compliant. In 2003, the Department issued another clar...
