This week marks the 42nd anniversary of Title IX, which prohibits sex discrimination in educational programs that receive federal funds. Title IX opened doors for women and girls in school to pursue sciences and sports, and also protects women from sexual harassment and violence — although there’s still a lot of work to do to eradicate sexual violence on campus. 
Happy birthday, Title IX. Here’s to continuing to make school a more equal place for women.
