Title 9 is a law passed in the 70’s relating to support for women’s sports in universities. Before Title 9, the trend was that colleges spent much more money to encourage men’s sports at universities. (Like football, baseball, and basketball).
Partly this is because those sports bring in more money to the college through selling tickets, etc. But unfortunately, there was not much money let for women’s sports, and money is needed for equipment, hiring good coaches, etc. And the lack of sports for women has a long-term effect on developing leadership and teamwork skills for women. (Probably why they are talking about this at YLF).
Title 9 was a law passed by Congress that colleges could not get money from the US government unless the university spent an equal amount of money on women’s vs. men’s sports. This was very controversial and not popular with the universities. And the law did not seem to be enforced very well over the years. But now the law seems to have had an effect, and women’s sports in universities are becoming more popular and getting more funding. Though it still is not perfectly equal.
