Publisher Comments:

Title IX represents a watershed in the history of girls' and women's education. In 1971, the year before Title IX was passed, fewer than 295,000 high school girls and 30,000 college women participated in their schools' athletic programs. By 2001, those numbers had increased to 2.8 million and 150,000, respectively. Through this rich collection of documents, Susan Ware shows how athletics, once viewed as a privilege, came to be seen as a right. In her introduction, she examines Title IX within the broader social and legislative history of the late twentieth century, providing her readers with a clear account of the changes taking place in educational institutions and in athletics more specifically. Her selections, each accompanied by a headnote providing context, offer a wide variety of perspectives, highlighting controversies surrounding the legislation that continue to the present. Document headnotes, a chronology, questions for consideration, and a selected bibliography offer additional pedagogical support.

About the Author

SUSAN WARE specializes in twentieth-century U.S. history and the history of American women. In addition to serving as editor of the biographical dictionary Notable American Women: Completing the Twentieth Century (2004), she is the author and editor of numerous books, including It's One O'Clock and Here Is Mary Margaret McBride: A Radio Biography (2005); Still Missing: Amelia Earhart and the Search for Modern Feminism (1993); and Partner and I: Molly Dewson, Feminism, and New Deal Politics (1987). Ware was the chair of the Scholars Advisory Committee for and wrote the introduction to American Women: A Library of Congress Guide for the Study of Women's History and Culture in the United States (2001).
