Gender equity remains a critical issue in college and high school athletics. Men were head coaches of 59.8 percent of women’s college teams in 2015-16 (NCAA, 2017). From 2011-2016, interscholastic boys’ participation opportunities increased by over 50,000 and the number of girls’ opportunities grew by over 150,000, yet “current girls” interscholastic participation numbers have never reached the boys pre-Title IX level (NCAA, 2017). Therefore, there is a need to deconstruct the ways in which power and oppression continue to influence intercollegiate and interscholastic athletic programs. Engagement in scholarship surrounding Title IX may forge pathways in confronting this injustice. Aligning with the conference theme of “decolonizing sport sociology,” this session seeks to highlight Title IX scholarship which sparks critical examination of gender equity in sport and challenges gender-based oppression, power, and marginalization in sports.
