Title IX strengthened!

I was delighted to learn of today's Supreme Court ruling in support of Title IX: "...it prohibits not only unequal treatment of girls and women at school, but also official retaliation against anyone -- male or female -- who blows the whistle on unequal treatment."

One of the common threads in the Geezerjock articles about 40+ women athletes was how they didn't get support at an early age in their athletic activities, and most had huge gaps in their athletic careers or were adult-onset athletes. I hope that has changed permanently.
