IX Voices for Title IX

New Season

About this Podcast

50 years ago, opportunities for women and girls in sport were few and far between. Enter Title IX.

In 1972, Title IX legislation was passed, which banned gender-based discrimination within government-funded institutions. While this wasn’t directly intended to affect the male-dominated sports culture, it opened the doors for equality on the field.

This limited series features in-depth interviews with women who lived through the cultural shift that Title IX represented, including icons like Joan Benoit, the first winner of the women’s Olympic marathon; Marianne Martin, the first woman to win the Tour De France Feminine; Bobbi Gibb, the first woman to finish the Boston Marathon; as well as athletic directors and athletes who continue to press for change today.

Here at Feisty, none of us would be where we are today without the changes that came from the passing of Title IX. It’s time to pay some respect to the women that made our dreams a reality.
