LosAngeles Harbor College
In 1972, Title IX of the Educational Amendments, the Sex Equity in Education Act, and Government Section Code 11135 became Federal Law. The adoption of Title IX facilitated tremendous growth in women’s athletics participation during the 1970’s. By 1978 the number of female high school student-athletes had grown from 300,000 to more than two million. Similarly, women’s collegiate sports participation doubled from 33,000
participants in 1971 to more than 64,000 in 1977. In the landmark 1992 Supreme Court decision Franklin vs Gwinnet, plaintiffs were allowed to recover monetary damages and attorney fees in Title IX cases.
In January of 1994, California Community College Chancellor’s and Presidents received a memo from the Chancellor’s Office concerning gender equity in intercollegiate athletics. The purpose of the memorandum was to inform all community colleges of actions taken by the Office of Civil Rights to ensure compliance with Title IX and to inform them of recent developments in the law relating to gender equity. The Chancellor’s Office recommended that colleges review their programs for compliance with applicable law and take steps to correct any inequities.
