June 23, 1972 President Nixon passed Title IX, a very historical law that would provide equal opportunity for education for both sexes.  More specifically, Title IX made sure that all education institutions, especially ones funded by the government, provided equal opportunities for sports as well.

If you’re a woman, I think we should all take time to think about where we would be if Title IX didn’t exist.  For me personally, I would not have had the opportunity to play volleyball, basketball, and swim competitively in high school.  I really wouldn’t have had the opportunity to play volleyball in college, or maybe even go to college.
