NWLC Responds to Biden Administration’s Title IX athletics NPRM

The following is a statement by Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC):

“NWLC has been fighting for over 50 years to see Title IX fulfill its promise to ensure all students are given equal opportunities and protected from sex discrimination. Extremist politicians continue to manufacture panic over trans girls’ inclusion in school and school athletics instead of addressing the real changes and protections girls need in sports, including equal time and resources in school sports or addressing the rampant sexual abuse of student athletes. LGBTQI students deserve to learn and thrive – not be targets for state-sponsored bullying and violence. We are grateful for the actions the Department of Education has taken to protect trans students and are ready to work to ensure that a final rule builds to further fight back against discrimination and misinformation, making crystal clear that trans, nonbinary, and intersex students are entitled to support, respect, and equal rights and opportunity.”
