If you're in the area...

Our area that is--western Massachusetts. Andrew Zimbalist is speaking tonight at Smith College, where he is a professor of economics.
Here is the link. Here is a brief description of the talk:

Andrew Zimbalist, sports commentator, consultant and author, will present a talk about the history, operation and impact of this landmark legislation. Signed into law with little or no fanfare in 1972, it prohibits sex discrimination against students and employees of educational institutions. In the 36 years since it became law, Title IX has hardly ever been free of controversy.

He will also be signing copies of the book he co-edited with Nancy Hogshead-Makar after the talk.
