Marking the 40th Anniversary of Title IX

Statement

This Saturday marks the 40th anniversary of Title IX of the Higher Education Act, which assured a woman's right to educational equality. Passed by a Democratic-led Congress in 1972, the landmark legislation has not only promoted equal opportunity for women in athletics, it has bolstered equal access to educational opportunities in a full range of academic subjects, including science, technology, engineering, and math. My colleagues and I will continue to work to promote equality and opportunity for all women. By supporting the Paycheck Fairness Act, we reaffirm an American value: equal pay for equal work. Unfortunately, the legislation continues to be blocked by Republicans in Congress.
