Tucker Center Distinguished Lecture Series

Fifty years after the passing of Title IX—the 1972 landmark civil rights federal law—the landscape of intercollegiate athletics for women has changed dramatically. The Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport’s 2022 Fall Distinguished Lecture series panel, “The Changing Landscape of College Sport & the Impact on Women,” features multidisciplinary scholars discussing the accomplishments of Title IX as well as the injustices, unevenness, and structural inequalities that persist, and what the next 50 years might look like for women in college athletics. In addition, panelists will offer scholarly insights into many current sociocultural, political, legal, and policy changes, how the media covers these issues, and the impact on women in US college sports and beyond. The Tuesday, October 25 (6-7:30pm) event is free and open to the public. Download a printable flyer here. Zoom registration: https://z.umn.edu/tc-DLS-2022-fall-registration
