Help us continue the vital work Title IX started

Subscribe and support The IX, where we commit to true equality of coverage every single day

Good morning! Today is the 48th anniversary of Title IX, banning discrimination by public institutions on the basis of sex, getting enacted. You’ll see media companies the world over celebrate this, as they should! (Then you’ll see them return to covering mostly men.)

Here The IX, you’ll get plugged-in coverage of women’s tennis from Joey Dillon. Yesterday, Annie Peterson on women’s soccer. Tomorrow, Howard Megdal on women’s hoops. Thursday, Carly Grenfell on women’s golf. Friday, Erica Ayala on women’s hockey. We do this every day.

To us, Title IX is a beginning, it is aspirational, and it is part of a larger change that needs to happen, especially in media, to truly bring equality into the sports world. Sports is a mirror to society — every time women’s sports are cast aside, we see something ugly.

Celebrate the beginning of that change, 48 years ago, by supporting reporters who tirelessly do the work to change that reflection, every single day. Join us. Subscribe to The IX. Help us be the media coverage you want for women’s sports.
