Disparities between the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball tournaments were on full display this March and now is the time to take action to ensure there is meaningful change.
On June 30, the Women’s Sports Foundation sent a letter to the NCAA urging full transparency for the findings and recommendations of the comprehensive gender equity review conducted by Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP. Read the official letter here.
In total, more than 2,700 individuals—including former Notre Dame women’s basketball head coach Muffet McGraw, basketball analyst LaChina Robinson and University of Michigan softball coach Carol Hutchins—added their voices to the call for gender equity in college sports. WSF was joined by nearly 60 organizations, ranging from Just Women’s Sports and Angel City FC to the TIME’S UP Foundation and National Women’s Law Center.
WSF appreciates all who signed on and their commitment to speaking out about this important issue. We are committed to holding those in power accountable to enact systemic change that will lead to equitable treatment for all student-athletes.
