Title Nine 35th Anniversary

Ohio University faculty and students gathered at the Baker University Center to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Title Nine. Title Nine increased the development of athletics for women, but the effect of the measure does not stop there. People who attended say that Title Nine encourages equal treatment for women in all areas, including the work force.
Stine Eckert went to the discussion yesterday. Eckert says that women have come a long way since Title Nine.

Ohio University Professor Nancy Bain, founder of the Women Studies Program, says she's been fighting for women's rights ever since she came to OU in 1971. She says she has seen a lot of progress, but more still needs to be done.
