Chairman Crowley Statement on Anniversary of Title IX

(Washington, DC) – House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY) issued the following statement on the 45th Anniversary of Title IX:

“For more than four decades, Title IX has served as a linchpin in the ongoing effort to achieve true gender equality in our education system. But the importance of the law goes far beyond getting women onto a field or in a game – it gives every young girl in America the opportunity reach her full potential inside the classroom as well. Empowering women is critical to tackling the challenges before us, and it cannot be lost that many young women find early confidence and self-esteem through sports and in the classroom.

“At a time when congressional Republicans and President Trump are more focused on closing doors of opportunity than opening them, it is more important than ever to build on the successes of Title IX and continue to empower and support the millions of young women across our country.”
