  • Law Degrees Held by Women Before Title IX 7%
  • Law Degrees Held by Women After Title IX 41%
  • Participation in High School Sports by Girls Prior to Title IX 7.6%
  • Participation in High School Sports by Girls in 2010 41.4%

There are over 3 million girls participating in high school sports — that’s a 997% increase since Title IX became law.  Girls have not been the only beneficiaries of Title IX; since the law was enacted, boys’ participation in high school sports has increased 22.5% (nearly 4.5 million boys participating).

In 1971, only 20% of enrolled students at NC State were women.  Today, nearly half (44%) of enrolled students at NC State are women.

Major gains in female participation in areas such as science, math, business, and athletics have shown that girls and women have both the interest and the aptitude to succeed in these fields—without detracting from opportunities for males.

Title IX was passed by the U.S. Congress on June 23, 1972, and signed by President Richard M. Nixon on July 1, 1972. It is a civil rights law prohibiting discrimination in education programs and activities receiving federal funds. It was the first comprehensive federal law to prohibit sex discrimination against students and employees in these institutions.
