June 23, 2022 will mark the 50th anniversary of Title IX; during that time frame there has been a drastic increase in girl’s and women’s participation in sport. There has also been signiﬁcant political debate and push back to Title IX which has threatened to undermine the impact of the law. Over the last 10 years, Title IX has been synonymous with litigation related to sexual harassment and transgender athlete participation in sport. Additionally, universities have continually sought to cut women’s sports under the guise of budgetary constraints. The purpose of this poster presentation is three-fold: 1) Review recent case developments in terms of cutting women’s sports; 2) emphasize that procedurally, sexual harassment and misconduct claims are in ﬂux across campuses; and 3) discuss the current state of transgender athlete participation policies in sports.
