Today is the 49th anniversary of Title IX, the federal law that has helped girls have equal access to their own sports teams and other school-related opportunities.
But as males who identify as female are increasingly participating in girls’ and women’s sports, states must decide: will we protect our female athletes?
Overwhelmingly, leaders across the states are saying “yes!”
Last year, Idaho became the first state to pass a law saying that girls’ sports should be reserved for females. Now, 30 states have introduced similar legislation and 8 states have passed their #SaveGirlsSports bills into law!
Join us TONIGHT to hear from five leaders on the front lines to #SaveGirlsSports. Each one has worked tirelessly to defend female athletes, and we’re honored to have them join us.
Saving Girls’ Sports, State by State
Come join us and learn about
- What Planned Parenthood has to do with girls’ sports
- What you can do to protect athletes in your state and nationwide
- Advocates in one state who were under such intense attack that they took steps to protect their physical safety
Meet our speakers!
