Description
 
Just a few decades ago, opportunities for girls were far more limited, not because they weren’t capable of playing sports, but because they weren’t allowed to. Then, in 1972, something momentous happened: Congress passed a law called “Title IX,” forever changing the lives of American girls. Hundreds of determined lawmakers, teachers, parents, and athletes carefully plotted to ensure that the law was passed, protected, and enforced. As a result of their perseverance, millions of American girls can now play sports. Here is a powerful tale of courage and persistence, the stories of the people who believed that girls could do anything -- and were willing to fight to prove it. A Junior Lib. Guild Selection. Jane Addams Children’s Book Award.  Illus.
