Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibited discrimination based upon sex in all education programs and activities offered by or through institutions receiving federal financial assistance. During the forty-four year history of Title IX, the legislative changes proposed and passed by Congress and the rulings of court cases filed with the Federal and Supreme Courts evolved the scope and regulation of the statute. This research performs a policy analysis to determine whether the intention and application of Title IX in 2016 parallels the intent of Congress when they originally passed Title IX in 1972.
