A Place on the Team: The Triumph and Tragedy of Title IX
A Place on the Team:
The Triumph and Tragedy of Title IX
"Finally, a lucid, thorough and non-polemical accounting of Title IX's
origins, development, and impact. Welch Suggs traces the women's sports
revolution back to its roots in physical education, details Title IX's
origins in civil rights law, and explains why the law has proven to be so
resistant to legal challenge. He doesn't flinch from taking stock of the
law's regrettable consequences. All future discussion of college sports and
gender equity will begin with this book."
--Alexander Wolff, Sports Illustrated
A Place on the Team is the inside story of how Title IX revolutionized
American sports. The federal law guaranteeing women's rights in education,
Title IX opened gymnasiums and playing fields to millions of young women
previously locked out. Journalist Welch Suggs chronicles both the law's
successes and failures-the exciting opportunities for women as well as the
commercial and recruiting pressures of modern-day athletics.
