Rights Act~Title IX is of the same import to women. I think that while racial discrimination has been looked at as one of the social blights in our society, many of our citizens still do not believe that sexism is a problem. Consequently, the necessity for having on the record, once and for all, the fact that women must not be discriminated against on the basis of their sex, and particularly where federal funds are involved, is one of the main reasons why we felt that Title IX would be so important.
