Article "Title IX is Slow Moving"

Description

This article discusses the Title IX law passed by Congress in 1975, which grants women equal opportunity for scholarship as men. Westhampton College was at least 2 years behind major competitors at meeting the specifications of Title IX by 1978. The assistant athletic director, Carol Reese, argues that there has been progress since the University now provides practice uniforms and shoes to in women's sports, but not a single woman on a varsity team had a scholarship. Additionally, with the integration of Title IX, women’s sports will now be broken down to divisional classifications just like men. Carol Reese claims that Westhampton College is behind other schools due to the lack of funding: “It takes money to build up a competitive program."
