Facts speak for themselves. In 1972, fewer than 300,000 girls in America played high school sports. Now, three million do. Saturday was the 40th anniversary of the passage of Title IX, the federal law that said no person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation or denied the benefits of any education program or activity receiving federal funds. And the world changed. "It's one of the most popular and successful civil rights laws the country's ever had," said Lisa Maatz, top policy adviser with the American Association of University Women and chair of the National Coalition for Women and Girls in Education (NCWGE)

MALE readers: Boycott the movie "Gracie. " It's nothing but female propaganda. If the girls who play on boys teams think they're so important, make them play in flip-flops, wedges or high heels. Tim Short, Bryn Mawr

SO MUCH for the weaker sex. It's been nearly 30 years since Congress passed that little law mandating equal resources for the sexes in school sports programs. Any school intending to cash a federal check has to pledge to give all the little girls as great an opportunity to get sweaty and spit in front of crowds as all the little boys. And now, decades after Title IX was introduced, women truly are coming even with men. A new study explains that we now have a crop of female university athletes who are just as dumb and academically lazy as their male counterparts.

By Linda J. Wharton When I played basketball and field hockey in high school in the early 1970s, sports opportunities for girls were severely limited. Nationally, one in 27 girls played high school sports, accounting for a disappointingly small percentage of high school athletes. Athletic scholarships for girls were virtually nonexistent. The equipment was make-do. Those of us who insisted on playing sports were regarded as tomboys. From fewer than 300,000 girls in 1971, female participation in competitive high school sports has ballooned to nearly three million.

For today's young people, the world before Title IX is as hard to imagine as a two-dribble limit in girls basketball. That's how the game was played back then - and before Title IX became law in 1972, the idea that athletic opportunities for girls and boys should be equal was far-fetched at best. Equal opportunity in college academics seemed a fantasy as well. This week marked the 25th anniversary of Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972, which forbids gender discrimination in programs receiving federal money.

Teachers and coaches often are in the best position to spot sex discrimination in schools. They should be able to object to injustices without fear of punishment. The U.S. Supreme Court this week properly gave them whistle-blower-like protection if their complaints are turned against them. The case involved a Birmingham, Ala., high school basketball coach, who pointed out the disparities in equipment, funding and practice conditions between his girls' team and the boys' squad.

Apparently striving to tamp down the debate over Title IX, U.S. Secretary of Education Rod Paige said yesterday that he will not even look at most of the more controversial recommendations sent to him yesterday by his Commission on Opportunity in Athletics. Paige said his department "intends to move forward only on those recommendations" reached unanimously without a formal vote. That serves to eliminate virtually all of the specific suggestions that had generated strife within the commission and had caused advocates to anticipate significant changes in the way the landmark 30-year-old statute is interpreted and enforced.

A pair of panelists who spoke last week at Villanova's law school spend their careers working on Title IX gender equity issues from different angles. A third spends much of her time studying Title IX. The panel on "Gender Equity in Sports: Analysis of Title IX and Effective Compliance Strategies," touched on 90 minutes worth of topics around the current college sports landscape. They hit on some interesting corners of the issue. One was how the counting of participants, part of the test for gender equity compliance, is an area of increasing controversy and sometimes comes into play during litigation.

Have you heard about the great program linked with less teenage pregnancy, higher high school graduation rates, the avoidance of abusive relationships and success later in life? It's called women's sports. Americans have long seen organized sports as a good thing for boys and young men. Should we be surprised that they're good for girls and young women? That's why the battle over Title IX, requiring parity between men's and women's athletics at educational institutions, is important.

Ryan T. Anderson is the William E. Simon senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation and author of the just-released book, "Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom. " You know gender-identity issues are getting lots of attention when it prompts one gay-rights activist to start a campaign called "Drop the T. " Its goal: to kick transgender out of the standard LGBT acronym for being "ultimately regressive and actually hostile to the goals of women and gay men. " Whatever happens within the LGBT community, one thing is clear: Government should not take sides in the transgender debate.

ISSUE | GENDER EQUALITY Level the field Many schools are still failing to provide equal athletic opportunities and treatment to female students, 44 years after Title IX became law ("Keeping gender field level," Saturday). Disparities in uniforms, facilities, and equipment persist. Many schools ignore disproportionate numbers of opportunities offered to boys and refuse to add girls' sports. Two requirements must be made clear: 1. Budget limitations do not excuse inequality under Title IX. Schools must allocate their resources in a way that results in equality.

I LOVE WHAT the University of Connecticut women's basketball team did Tuesday night. Love the idea of a dynasty in any sport, the concept of unselfishness and team play, the thought of authenticating it all via a convincing, lopsided victory in the championship game. I just don't enjoy watching it. I feel bad about that, as I do about not enjoying kale. I should, I know. It will enrich my life, for sure. It's just, well, pretty dull stuff. It's nothing against women or women playing sports.

Mary Fetter Semanik, 86, formerly of Wayne, a standout lacrosse player who went on to become a longtime director of women's athletics at Drexel University, died Friday, Feb. 19, of cerebral vascular disease at Chestnut Hill Hospital. Mrs. Semanik began work at Drexel in the 1950s as a teacher and coach. She and her husband, John, a 1956 Drexel graduate, carved out parallel career paths. He was Drexel's director of men's athletics from 1962 to 1991; she was the women's director from 1965 to 1991.

ISSUE | COLLEGE SPORTS Title IX unfair to men Title IX, a federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in education, harms college sports in many ways ("Bending the rules of Title IX," Feb. 2). For example, many men's varsity teams suffer from a strict roster cap, while women's teams typically are unlimited. Gender-quota advocates complain about the supposed injustice of expanding the number of women allowed on a team. This pales compared with the thousands of men being told to clean out their lockers because of their sex - something that Title IX was supposed to prevent but was changed by special interests to guarantee.

TEMPLE HAS a new athletic director. But it's a familiar face. Patrick Kraft, who's served as the deputy AD since 2013, will succeed Kevin Clark, who, like Kraft, came to North Broad Street from Indiana along with university president Neil Theobald. Clark has been reassigned to the newly created position of executive vice president and chief operating officer. "Temple is an extraordinary university and its athletics programs are advancing with tremendous support from our students, faculty, coaches, parents and alumi," Kraft said in a release.

She had so many true and heartfelt things to say about her school, and Emily Moran's greatest worry, as she prepared to deliver the commencement address Sunday at La Salle University, was that the words would pour out of her into a shapeless pile, like jelly beans from a bag. She has always talked fast, especially among those she knows best and loves most. "They keep telling me, 'You have to slow down,' " she said. It's no wonder why. She has five siblings. Her father is one of 15, and from those 14 aunts and uncles Emily Moran has 86 cousins.

IN THE past week, more has been said about sexual assaults on college women than probably at any time in history. The White House released new measures from a federal task force on the issue, the New York Times featured a front-page story and discussions lit up national TV talk shows, tweets, web posts and many column inches. But one photograph says it all, one photograph that explains why we're now confronting the scandalous reality that, according to one study, one in five college women has been raped, their complaints ignored and covered up by their schools.
