Happy National Girls and Women in Sports Day

February 6th is National Girls and Women in Sports Day.

The folks at National Women's Law Center are celebrating the day by reflecting on what Title IX means to them -- check them out. Then go here to tell your representatives in Congress to support pending legislation that would strengthen Title IX enforcement at the high school level. Then if you're here in Springfield, register your daughter for the Girls and Women in Sports Day clinic at Western New England College--or find a celebration near you.

As for me, I'm going swimming at my college pool -- a facility that serves all faculty and students but that owes its existence to the fact that we have a women's swim team. Go Golden Bears. Yea Title IX.
