State Ranking of Gender Equity in High School Sports

High schools across the country are not providing girls with their fair share of spots on sports teams. The chart below ranks states based on what percentage of their high schools have large gender equity gaps in sports.

  • Nationally, of the more than 16,000 high schools examined, nearly 4,500 schools—28 percent—have large gender equity gaps.
  • Georgia ranks last in terms of female athletic equality – two-thirds of public high schools in the state have large gender equity gaps in sports.

It's time for change, and we must act now. Time's up.
