Fifty years of Title IX: What is it, what does it cover and do we still need it?


Here’s what you need to know about Title IX. Eight years after that landmark 1964 Act, the Title IX portion of the 1972 amendments sought to expand those protections by focusing on educational funding. The historic 1980 Alexander v. Yale case was the first to use Title IX in charges of sexual harassment against an educational institution. Some have proposed that the future of college sports may need a revamped Title IX to scale with the ever-changing landscape of the industry. Some have argued that NIL legislation and Title IX protections are on a collision course that the 1972 law never could have imagined.
