Scalise and Lesko: Fifty Years After Title IX, We Must Protect Women’s Sport
Posted June 23, 2022
WASHINGTON, D.C. -Today, on the 50th anniversary of Title IX being signed into law, House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) and Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (R-Ariz.) co-authored an op-ed for FoxNews.com criticizing Democrats for dismantling Title IX protections and failing to protect women's sports. Whip Scalise and Congresswoman Lesko highlight how Democrats' misguided efforts to allow biological males to compete against biological females promotes inequality and is unfair to women athletes. Whip Scalise and Congresswoman Lesko emphasize that women and girls should be allowed a fair playing field in competitive sports by ensuring that school athletics comply with the Title IX recognition of a person's reproductive biology and genetics at birth.
