Back in 1972, advocates of Title IX didn’t know it would have anything to do with sports. Yet the federal law has allowed millions of American girls to play school sports. Jenny Brundin’s been reading up on title IX and its progress and shortcomings over 40 years. Host Ryan Warner talks with her about that, and about a new study on how well students study.
