In 1972, when Title IX was passed, there were only 700 girls playing soccer at the high-school level in the whole United States. Now, nearly 400,000. From , how public policy changes lives.
I wrote about the , who I fucking love, and how Title IX allowed us to invest in women’s potential and women’s strength.
“The success story of women’s sports shows how marginalized groups can be given opportunities through policy interventions.” Thank you, #TitleIX, for this #USWNT, and for giving all girls the opportunity to follow in their footsteps. 🇺🇸 #FIFAWWC
EE UU ha ganado el Mundial de fútbol... gracias a una ley contra la discriminación de género. Obligaba a invertir TAMBIÉN en deporte para niñas. Cuando se aprobó, en 1972, había 400 niñas federadas. En 1991, con el primer Mundial, ya eran 120.000. Brutal
"Participation shot up. In 1972, when title IX was passed, there were only 700 girls playing soccer at the high-school level in the whole United States. By 1991, the year of the first Women’s World Cup, there were 121,722 high school girl players"
Law matters: "In 1972, when #TitleIX was passed, there were only 700 girls playing soccer at the high-school level in the whole United States. By 1991, the year of the first Women’s World Cup, there were 121,722 high school girl players–a 17,000% increase"

Title IX as international sports industrial policy
“When USA faces off against NED, Americans can cheer not just for the accomplishments of the soccer players on the field, but for the success of a law whose fundamental principle is that women’s and girls’ potential is worth investing in.” —
Congrats on your World Championship! 🇺🇸 You rock. Congrats also to Title IX, a piece of public policy that requires schools to make equal investments in the athletic potential of women & girls. Oh yeah ... 1 more thing ... PAY THEM!
The #USWMNT shows what’s possible when countries invest real money in gender equality and enforce this with policy change. (Worth noting Republican efforts to obstruct this progress, which were thankfully unsuccessful...)
Congrats to . #TitleIX played a large part in getting you there. No surprise that 65% of 's most powerful women played high school or college sports.
Public policy in action! “In 1972, when Title IX was passed, there were only 700 girls playing soccer at the high school level in the whole US. By 1991, the yr of the 1st Women’s World Cup, there were 121,722 high school girl players – a 17,000% increase.”

From on Title IX: "...title IX’s success in creating discrimination-free educational environments ... is spotty at best. But the athletic non-discrimination provision has been a massive success in encouraging American girls to play sports."
