NWLC Reacts to Extended Final Title IX Rule Delay

The following is a statement from Shiwali Patel, Director of Justice for Students Survivors and Senior Counsel at the National Women’s Law Center:

“We’re deeply disappointed in the Biden Administration’s decision to postpone the final Title IX rule until March 2024, almost a year later than first promised. These ongoing delays are unacceptable, leaving students stuck under outdated and harmful Trump-era rules. Survivors, LGBTQI+ students, and pregnant and parenting students are being harmed every day by the absence of these protections and the lack of a new Title IX final rule. We refuse to tolerate broken promises any longer. The Biden Administration must take immediate action to strengthen Title IX and meet the urgency this moment calls for.”
