What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities in federally funded schools at all levels.

Title IX protects students, employees, applicants for admission and employment, and other persons from all forms of sexual discrimination, including discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity.
