In June 1972, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 was passed to ensure that millions of girls in the United States would be given a fair chance in competing in high school sports. Yet, despite Title IX, 41 percent of high school athletes across the country are female.

Why aren’t there more? Why hasn’t the difference still been made?

There should be a society where girls are free to pursue sports, that they should be inspired to do so. Title IX helps, but more needs to be done.
