Evening the Odds [electronic resource]: Is Title IX Working?

MacNeil/Lehrer Productions
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
In 1972, Title IX was established, a civil rights act that prohibits gender discrimination at any school that receives federal funds. In this program filmed in 1997, Elizabeth Brackett, of WTTW in Chicago, goes to Indiana University-alma mater of Olympic diving medalists Lesley Bush and Cynthia Potter-to investigate higher education's Title IX track record in the area of sports. The IU administration is working diligently to meet Title IX conditions by creating new athletics programs and spreading out scholarship dollars more evenly between male and female athletes. But a USA Today survey found that only seven Division 1 schools have met the Title IX standards for gender equity. IU does not expect to be in compliance for several years, and the National Women's Law Center, which has filed complaints against a number of other schools for discriminating against female athletes in scholarship funding, is doing its best to speed up the process.
