SHARP Insights: How Title IX Changed the Game — The Social Costs of Falling Short of Gender Equity in High School

As a part of our 40th Anniversary of Title IX, SHARP Center monthly speaker series, D’Youville College professor Don Sabo will speak Friday, February 3, at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. In his lecture, How Title IX Changed the Game: The Social Costs of Falling Short of Gender Equity in High School, Professor Sabo will show that gender inequality in high school sports is linked to an array of social costs related to physical activity, educational achievement, public health, teen pregnancy prevention and delinquency.

Professor Sabo is the Women’s Sports Foundation’s Senior Sport and Health Policy Advisor and a nationally recognized expert on Title IX. As a former WSF trustee, he directed the development of the first national policy on sexual harassment in athletic settings.

The SHARP Center for Women and Girls, our collaboration with the University of Michigan, advances research and policymaking to enhance the lives of women and girls through sport, play and movement.

The lecture is free of cost and open to the public. For additional information on the SHARP Insights series, please contact Terri Eagen-Torkko at 734-647-6394 or at SHARP.Insights@umich.edu.
