Is it equal?

On June 23, 1972, Congress passed Title IX, a ground breaking decision which outlawed discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity receiving federal funding. Now, in 2011, has this monumental act of congress changed the game for women? Currently, how are women perceived in athletics? Are there physical limitations involved, could we do a better job offering equal opportunities from a developmental perspective, or is it even possible to sustain professional athletics for women? On March 22nd, Erin Moran, Anna Menke, Mariele Chambers, Jenny Currie, Liz Elcock, Taylor Huyck, Katie Koenig, Nicole Magee, and Jackie Mazur will head down to the Sports Hub of the nation to attempt to answer these questions and many more! The visit will include stops to Boston University, the Boston Bruins, and the Boston Blades of the CWHL. Keep following for more updates!

I'll be very curious to see what you come up with... can equality be truly mandated?
