Pac-12 alumni, coaches & student-athletes celebrate Title IX's legacy
For 46 years, Title IX has opened doors for generations of female student-athletes in the Pac-12 Conference.
Coming off the 2017-18 season, another banner year for Pac-12 women which saw nine NCAA Championships, is a worthy time to celebrate the profound impact Title IX has had on today's sporting landscape. Over the last two seasons, Pac-12 schools have taken home a total of 19 national titles. And the Pac-12 owns 183 overall women's NCAA titles, the most of any conference in the country. The SEC ranks second with 103.
Title IX, passed on June 23, 1972, is a landmark piece of legislation that paved the way for equal female participation in athletics at all levels (More: US. Department of Education).
