Abstract

It has become increasingly apparent that gender equity in athletics, while in some instances centered on the particulars of Title IX compliance, is about more than that. Gender equity in athletics is about confronting fundamental cultural norms, beliefs and values held by a population who has been historically and traditionally responsible for perpetuating sexism, sex bias and discrimination through a variety of socio-cultural institutions, one of which is the co-curricular activity of school sport.
