Will the Future of Sports Mean Equality for Women?

Mar 13, 2017

2:00pm – 3:00pm CT

It has been 45 years since Title IX passed. The law, which guaranteed equal funding for women's sports in federally funded education, changed the lives of women for generations to come. But where have we come since then? And where are we heading? And most importantly: Will women’s sports and athletes ever be equal? This panel will discuss what the future of women in sports looks like, what equality would look like and how we get there.
