Title IX celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2022. While this landmark legislation is most well known for expanding women's sports, its original purpose was based in education. Senator Birch Bayh, co-author of Title IX, felt that if a program received federal funding, women and men should benefit equally. Tennis legend Billie Jean King is featured in this episode.
