We are seeing a trend happen across the country. And, not the good kind.
Women are being sidelined by biological males in sports competitions. Examples of this are being seen throughout the country, such as in Connecticut where women athletes have been denied state championship titles due to biological males competing and last year when a biological male robbed female swimmers of their places on NCAA national championship platforms.
This is unfair, unsafe and discriminatory.
The Biden administration is protecting males in women’s sports by embracing policies and rules to promote a radical gender ideology that only harms women and takes away equal opportunity for women in sports competitions.
And, Biden’s Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, has unfortunately stated that he supports the move to allow biological males to compete in women’s sports—a view in direct contradiction with the majority of Americans.
But, together, we can save girls’ sports!
You might have seen the letter that Family Policy Alliance and nearly 30 other allied organizations recently sent to the Biden administration’s Department of Education opposing any proposed rules that would undermine women’s opportunities to excel in sports.
This is unlawful and unthinkable, and FPA is fighting back.
Since 2020, a total of 18 states have passed commonsense protections for women in sports, and many more have introduced legislation this year. Now, we need the federal government to respond. Fortunately, Congressman Greg Steube (R-FL) has introduced a bill in the House to protect equal opportunities for women and girls in athletics, and now more than ever we need you to encourage your member of Congress to support this legislation.
H.R. 734, the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act, will go a long way to restore women’s chances at a fair competition by enforcing the Title IX provisions that protect women and girls from discrimination and physical harm in athletics. Title IX was enacted in 1972 to advance women’s rights by ensuring no one can be denied equal access to educational opportunities on the basis of sex. Since that time, the number of women and girls in sports has grown from under 300,000 to 3.5 million!
Please take a moment using the form below tell your congressional member to cosponsor the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act. Then, share this message with a friend who also supports protecting women and girls from discrimination in sports.
Women and girls deserve better. Thank you for standing to protect and promote equal opportunities!
