President’s Council to publish invited Kane article on Title IX

KaneMJ-2005Professor Mary Jo Kane, School of Kinesiology faculty and director of the Tucker Center, has had an invited paper accepted for publication in the PCFSN Research Digest, a journal of the President’s Council on Fitness, Sport & Nutrition. The article, entitled “Title IX at 40: Examining Mysteries, Myths & Misinformation Surrounding the Historic Federal Law,” makes a strong case for the positive results of Title IX, and counters many myths associated with the groundbreaking legislation including the oft-repeated assertion by its critics that Title IX is responsible for the dropping of men’s non-revenue sports.
