Hi, Cynthia--I read your notes about a possible Web site, and want to
add my encouragement. I am relatively new to the Internet, and finding
Title IX sites has been difficult. For one thing, most requests for
information about Title IX lead only to athletics; we really need to
flesh out the public understanding of what Title IX is and can do.

We also need direct links to the regulations themselves, and to the
OCR's case law, to information on how to file a FOIA request to see
documents, OCR info on how to file complaints, and how a case may
involve other laws as well as Title IX. There is almost no information
linking violence against women, especially violence in dating situations
and on campuses, to Title IX. We need collections of links to state
anti-violence and domestic violence laws.

We need preschool-kindergarten information, because that is when a
child first enters the public school system, and it is also when parents
may be most attentive to gender socialization.
I have been working on sketches for a web site to approach these gaps,
but it would be better to have a central clearinghouse of links. Let me
know if I can help.
