June 23, 1972: Title IX is Signed into Law
On this day in 1972, President Richard Nixon signed Title IX of the Education Amendments into law. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in all education programs or activities which receive federal funding. In addition to traditional educational institutions, Title IX applies to any education or training program receiving federal financial assistance.  
One of the most notable impacts of Title IX is the implementation of women sports in schools. As a result, there are more women participating in sports than ever before.  In 1971, there were about 310,000 girls and women participating in high school and college sports, in the United States; today, there are more than 3 million.
