50 Years of Title IX
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 under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.Title IX, Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. §§ 1681-1688
In June 1972, Congress passed Title IX, prohibiting sex-based discrimination in any federal government-funded school or other educational programs. The 50 Years of Title IX exhibition features a number of original materials from Washington University’s Special Collections that highlight important events in the University’s implementation of Title IX and the ever-evolving journey towards gender-based equality.
This exhibition was organized by subject Librarian AJ Robinson and Sarah Winkler of the Gender Equity and Title IX Compliance Office for Washington University Libraries
