In a recent Washington Post article, “A sport of their own: A high school wrestler from Kansas spent four years fighting to give girls the opportunity to compete in an official state sport,” Mary Jo Kane, Ph.D., director emerita of the Tucker Center and professor in the School of Kinesiology, comments on Title IX, the landmark 1972 legislation designed, in part, to create gender equity in sports. The article covers Mya Kretzer who as a high schooler advocated to the Kansas Board of Education to make girls’ wrestling an official state sport.
