Notes

After graduating from NYU Law School, Margot Polivy worked as the Assistant General Counsel of the FCC in Washington DC, specializing in the Fairness Doctrine (equal rights and equal time for political matters). She left the agency in 1971 and worked as an administrative assistant for Bella Abzug, Congresswoman from New York, where she became involved in legislation and regulations regarding Title IX and other women’s rights issues. Polivy left Abzug’s office in 1972 and started a communications law firm with friend Katrina Renouf. Polivy represented the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW), from 1974, until the AIAW was overshadowed by the NCAA and ceased operations in the early 1980s.
