AAUW Focus 2015-16 TItle IX

The Americtitle iXan Association of University Women strongly supports the vigorous enforcement of Title IX and all other civil rights laws pertaining to education.  Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 was the first comprehensive federal law to prohibit sex discrimination in education. It covers women and men, girls and boys, and staff and students in any educational institution or program that receives federal funds. This includes local school districts, colleges and universities, for-profit schools, career and technical education agencies, libraries, and museums. Music classes or choirs, sex education classes, and sports involving bodily contact are exempt from Title IX, as are religious institutions if the law would violate their religious tenets. Admissions policies at private undergraduate institutions are also exempt.Thank you for visiting Kirkland-Redmond AAUW website.
