Women's Sports at Stanford: 40 Years of Title IX

An all-star panel discusses the impact of Title IX on women's sports in general, and Stanford sports in particular, since the passage of this groundbreaking legislation 40 years ago. The just-completed 2012 Olympiad provided ample evidence of the growth of women's sports in America since 1972. Stanford has fielded the best overall women's sports program in the country for the past three decades, and representatives from four marquee sports--basketball, soccer, swimming and tennis--will weigh in on how Title IX has helped make that possible.

Panelists:

Marlene Bjornsrud, CEO of the Bay Area Women's Sports Initiative

Frank Brennan, Coach of 10 Stanford national championship women's tennis teams

Anne Cribbs ’79, 1960 Olympic swimming gold medalist and Co-Founder of American Basketball League

Julie Foudy ’94, Two time Olympic soccer gold medalist and ESPN analyst

Angela Taylor ’93, Member of two Stanford national championship basketball teams and former VP of two WNBA teams


Moderator:

Gary Cavalli ’71, Executive Director of Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, Co-Founder and CEO of American Basketball League
