Hi, YGUEYE, and welcome!
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is the U.S. law that says
no educational institution that receives federal funds may discriminate
against either teachers or students on the basis of sex. Most U.S.
states have similar laws in place governing their education codes. The
United States does not have an amendment to the Constitution forbidding
discrimination on the basis of sex (the Fourteenth Amendment forbids
discrimination on the basis of race). Because court cases in the nited
States must hark back to the Constitution in making decisions, court
decisions are thus made conservative, because of course, at the time of
the Constitution's writing, only white, male, landowners were considered
citizens of the "free democracy." What is the situation for you in Cote
