Playing Fair by Embracing Gender Equity in Sport

Since Title IX was enacted in 1972, women’s participation in sports has grown exponentially; yet, women’s athletic successes remain stifled by inequity and insufficient opportunity. As the coronavirus pandemic halts athletic competition globally, female athletes will be hurt disproportionately due to rescheduled seasons, reverted sponsorships and resources, and decreased incomes proportional to number of games played. While we continue to cheer on ceiling-breaking advancement, how can we keep the momentum going and ensure that equity and access are fair game for all athletes?
