The National Coalition for Women and Girls in Education is collecting
information on states that have gender equity in education or general
equity laws(that include gender). These laws are a tool for
institutionalizing gender equity at the state level, especially in light of
the loss of federal support through Title IV (Civil Rights Act) funding and
the potential elimination of sex equity mandates and set-aside funding
through the Perkins Vocational Equity Act. To date, we are aware of gender
legislation/regulations in Florida, Washington, Alaska, and California.
Minnesota and Maryland have multicultural education regulations which
include gender. Please let me know of other state regulations, and send me
a copy of the regulation and any monitoring guides. Linda Shevitz, Equity
