Title IX Anniversary and Battle of the Sexes
June 23, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Celebrate the forty-seventh anniversary of Title IX with a Battle of the Sexes! The film stars Emma Stone and Steve Carell and recounts the 1973 epic tennis match between Billy Jean King and Bobby Riggs. After the screening, Trish Wallace, J.D., will discuss the strengths and limitations of Title IX, the civil rights law which prohibits sex-based discrimination in federally-funded programs. In addition to Trish we will hear from Robin Williams, Athletic Director of Booker T. Washington High School in Norfolk, and Melanie Barr-Brooks, J.D., Title IX Coordinator at Northern Virginia Community College.
Coach Muffett McGraw, Notre Dame’s Women’s Basketball Coach, will join us virtually in support of Virginia’s ratification efforts!
Admission is free (you can just show up); but, your contribution will support VAratifyERA, a 100% volunteer campaign to ensure Virginia is the 38th state to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. For more information on VAratifyERA, please visit the website at https://varatifyera.org.
