Despite the enormous progress made in the 40+ years since Title IX was enacted, high school girls still receive 1.3 million fewer participation opportunities than do boys, and the money spent on girls' sports is still far less than that spent on boys' sports. But unlike colleges, high schools are not required to disclose any data on gender equity in sports, making it hard for schools, students and parents to ensure fairness in their schools™ athletics programs.
The High School Data Transparency Bills of 2013 (S. 217 and H.R. 455) would address the ongoing inequalities by requiring high schools to report information (most of which is already collected by schools) on the gender breakdown of their teams and athletics expenditures. This information will allow schools, parents and students to evaluate their athletics programs to make sure that they are treating boys and girls equally. Click here to encourage your elected officials to pass these two important, bipartisan bills that will make a huge difference in the lives of girls.
