To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Title IX, The FAME Center and the Sports Law Society held a virtual panel on January 30 featuring three women who advocate for change in the world of women's gymnastics. One of Title IX’s most visible impacts is the inclusion of women in sports. According to a study by the Women’s Sports Foundation, female participation in high school sports rose from 290,000 in 1972 to 3.4 million in 2019. The impact of Title IX has extended to professional athletics as well, with major advancements such as the creation of the Women’s National Basketball Association being credited in part to it.
