June 23 marked the 42nd anniversary of Title IX, an anti-discrimination law that’s not only opened doors for women, but worked to eliminate discrimination in federally funded institutions nationwide. When applied to college athletics, Title IX is almost a dirty word. With three ways to comply with Title IX, schools often focus on prong one, commonly known as proportionality.
