US Women’s National Team shows how soccer can surpass Title IX

On the 50th anniversary of Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex and gender remains illegal by law. However, the United States has made little effort to prevent de facto discrimination in sports from institutions receiving federal funding when it comes to fan attendance and viewership.

And those issues exist throughout each and every level of women’s sports.

When I was in high school I played on the women’s soccer team. Our team was great. In the three seasons I spent on the team, we reached at least the semifinals of the city playoffs. In my final year we made it all the way to the finals.
