On The Issues Magazine has just published a special edition focusing on the 40th Anniversary of Title IX. If I’ve learned one thing from FairGameNews it’s that the matter of how female athletes use and present their bodies reliably spurs heated — though circular and predictable — debate. In the special issue I offer three reasons why we’ve gotten so stuck — and how we might think fresh about this perennial lightning rod of a subject. Read it here. Also check out the other essays, including an excellent piece by Alex Channon on why Sex Segregation is Bad for Society.
