Sponsored by the Class of 1974
In June 1972, the U.S. Congress and president brought into law Title IX, a portion of the Educational Amendments that prohibited gender discrimination in schools or other federally funded educational programs. One of the most notable effects was athletics: women’s participation in sports grew exponentially, including at Cornell, where by the fall of 1972 more than 300 women were involved in a dozen college sports – more than any other college or university in New York state.
This year, Cornell celebrates women's athletics and the 50th anniversary of Title IX. As part of this celebration, the Class of 1974 invites you to join Cornell historian Corey Ryan Earle '07 for this look back at the history of women's athletics at Cornell. Corey will also moderate a panel of two Class of 1974 women athletes and two current student athletes.
