Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex against any person in education programs and activities receiving federal funding. Programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance include virtually all public and private colleges and universities and all public elementary and secondary schools.
All students, staff, faculty, and other employees; women, girls, men, and boys; straight, LGBTQ+, and gender-nonconforming persons; persons with and without disabilities; and international and undocumented persons all have the right to pursue education, including athletic programs, scholarships, and other activities, free from sex discrimination, including sexual violence and harassment.
Sex-based discrimination in public schools also implicates legal rights under Title IV of the Civil Rights Act, which is enforced by the US Department of Justice.
