A great video on the impact of Title IX

Title IX is a US law that requires equal access to men and women in education. Because of the role of educational institutions in sport, for 40 years Title IX has had a huge impact on the presence of girls and women in sport. This video highlights that impact, with a focus on Billie Jean King, founder of the Women's Sport Foundation that continues to campaign for the preservation and enforcement of this ground-breaking legislation.
