On June 23, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 — which requires gender equity in all federally funded education programs — will turn 40 years old. The law is considered a major success by many, opening opportunities for women that they believe would not otherwise have existed. But adulation for Title IX isn’t universal, especially when it comes to the negative effect some maintain it has had on men’s intercollegiate sports. And there are more fundamental questions: Is there something wrong with the law because it focuses disproportionately on sports? Could it make academics a contentious battleground if its focus were turned from sports? Is it constitutional? And, are its curbs on freedom worth its benefits? Please join us for a lively discussion of this landmark law.
Featuring the author Angus Deaton, Dwight D. Eisenhower Professor of Economic and International Affairs, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs & Economics Department, Princeton University; with comments by Charles Kenny, Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development; moderated by Ian Vasquez, Director, Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity, Cato Institute.
