The rights of transgender athletes
When the gender equity legislation known as Title IX came into effect in 1972, transgender sports policy was not even a jolt in the national conversation. Today, it is one of the sharpest dividing points in American culture.
As the transformational law enters its second half-century on the books, the Biden administration wants transgender athletes to have the same protections that Title IX originally gave women when it was passed 50 years ago. This position is in contradiction with the efforts made in the states of the country.
