Abstract

Associate Director, Project on the Status and Education of Women

Interviewed by Julia Lamber and Jean Robinson on July 10, 2006, in Washington, D.C.

Notes

Margaret Dunkle is the unsung heroine of Title IX, the 1972 landmark legislation that prohibits sex discrimination in schools and colleges receiving federal funding. Her leadership was a major force in ensuring strong Title IX rules, especially in athletics, which quickly became the most visible and contentious area of inequities for women and girls. Within days of Title IX’s passage, Ms. Dunkle joined the influential Association of American College’s Project on the Status and Education of Women. As athletics became the engine of Title IX, she wrote the groundbreaking analysis documenting massive discrimination against female college athletes. Continued at Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame.
