Am enjoying the open discussion about Title IX, Title VII and the 14th
Amendment. Just want to clarify a legal citation: Title IX is cited as Title IX
of the 1972 Education Amendments to the Higher Education Act. Title IX
is NOT part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII is part of the Civil
Rights Act of 1964. Title IX deals with education and ed agencies
receiving fed dollars. Title VII deals with a broader definition of
discrimination (more protected classes covered) and deals with
employment discrimination involving employers w/ 15 or more employees.
I stress this because there is a great deal of confusion "out there" about
these statutes. To cite the wrong one can be disasterous. :-)
