June 23 marked the 45th anniversary of the passage of Title IX, a law that opened a new world of equal opportunity for girls and women to participate in sports. Before the passage of Title IX, one in 27 girls played sports. In 2016, that number had increased over tenfold.

In honor of the anniversary, The Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport together its partners released a report, “Gender, Race & LGBT Inclusion of Head Coaches of Women’s Teams: A Report on Select NCAA Division I Conferences for the 45th Anniversary of Title IX.”
