Gender Equity In College Athletics: Women Coaches As A Case Study, Deborah L. Rhode, Christopher J. Walker

ExpressO

As Title IX celebrates its 35th anniversary, many have noted the positive impact it has had on women sports. But there is also an unintended (and oft-neglected) byproduct: as opportunities for female students have increased, opportunities for female professionals have declined. This Article focuses on the barriers that still confront women in college athletics, particularly those who seek professional positions in coaching and administration. Part I presents a brief overview of Title IX, which makes clear its limitations in securing gender equity.

Revisiting Title Ix's Feminist Legacy: Moving Beyond The Three-Part Test, Deborah L. Brake

University of Pittsburgh School of Law Working Paper Series

This essay addresses three issues surrounding Title IX’s application to women’s sports that have been largely eclipsed by the recent controversy over Title IX’s three-part test: the increasingly male composition of athletic leadership positions; the focus on cutting men’s sports as a remedy to discrimination against women; and the role of revenue and massive spending on men’s elite sports in justifying gender inequality in sports. The essay links each of these issues to broader questions and concerns in discrimination law more generally, and concludes that deeper cultural change is necessary to fulfill Title IX’s ...


The Secretary's Commission On Opportunity In Athletics Squandered Its Opportunity: Commercial College Sports And Why Title Ix Cannot Achieve Full Gender Equality Or Prevent The Elimination Of Minor Men's Teams, Suzanne Sangree Aug 2003

Instead, it reiterated its support for the principles of gender equality embodied in Title IX. We thus narrowly averted a civil rights ...
