In this episode:
Karen Blumenthal, brilliant author and historian, chronicles spirited events that took place leading up to and following the passage of Title IX. She states that, even more than laws passed during the Civil Rights Movement, Title IX is the most significant equal rights law for women. As a young girl, Karen “desperately” wanted to be a true athletic competitor. Today, she celebrates the fact that young women are freely encouraged to do so.
