“Soccer moms” reflect on the lifelong impacts of Title IX

Title Nine was signed into law by President Nixon in 1972. It was supposed to create more gender equality in education. That meant for every men’s sports team, schools had to provide a women’s equivalent. In 1974, fewer than three hundred thousand girls played high school sports. Thanks to Title Nine, today that number’s grown to over three million. Reporter Sara Harrison visited with some of the first women to benefit from Title Nine to see if sports continue to be an important part of their lives.
