New Article on Women Coaches and Title IX

Professor Deborah Rhode and Christopher Walker have been researching the impact of Title IX on women coaches (surveying 450 male and female coaches about their experiences and expectations in coaching). The results of their research are forthcoming in the Stanford Journal of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties. A working draft of the paper is available here. Rhode and Walker have concluded that although Title IX has contributed significantly to the opportunities for female athletes, the situation of women coaches is more conflicted due to a variety of factors. This is a really interesting read -- the authors are looking forward to reader comments and suggestions as well, so we encourage you to post a comment on the blog.
