A rally is being held in Washington DC to mark the 50th Anniversary of Title IX, the federal civil rights law as part of the Education Amendments of 1972 which prohibits sex-based discrimination in education. The “Our Bodies, Our Sports” rally will be held on June 23rd. Among those slated to attend are Alana Smith of Danbury, who was a plaintiff in a lawsuit that sought to prevent transgender athletes from competing in girls high school sports in Connecticut. Before Title IX, only one in 27 girls participated in sports. Today, two in five do.
