Title IX at 50

June 23, 2022 marks the 50th anniversary of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination based on sex–including sexual orientation and gender identity–in federally funded education programs. As a member and the new Vice Chair of the National Coalition for Women and Girls in Education, GLSEN co-authored a new report, Title IX At 50, mapping out how far we’ve come and the work that remains to be done to deliver on the promise of Title IX through a series of issue briefs.

Too often, LGBTQ+ students, and particularly those who are transgender, nonbinary, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and people with disabilities, face discrimination in our K-12 learning communities. GLSEN is proud to have authored the Title IX Issue Brief on LGBTQI+ Students, in partnership with Athlete Ally, the Inclusion Playbook, and the National Women’s Law Center, and to have contributed to several other issue briefs, including those addressing athletics and discriminatory discipline based on sex and race.
