Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A seminal piece of American legislation, Title IX was signed into law in 1972, ensuring that no federally-funded educational program could exclude anyone based on gender. Originally drafted to guarantee women access to school athletics, Title IX has had a far-reaching effect on all aspects society, starting a legacy of true equal-rights legislation for women that opened doors and minds. Title IX's impact on both genders, and on society as a whole, is an important focus of this volume, which merges straightforward history with firsthand accounts from those who took on the monumental task of changing politics and people in the 1960s and 1970s. Also stressed is the vital connection between women's rights and racial equality. The authors, all senior executives at the non-profit Educational Development Center, also review the changes still needed, as well as evidence of regression in American policy and culture. Though an incomplete history and a less-than-rigorous policy evaluation, this volume admirably archives the testimony of brave activists, past and present, who struggle for true parity, and warns against forgetting or distorting the origins of the debate.

Review

More Than Title IX is the story of how our society was transformed by opening education to women, by law. Testimonies from leaders tell us what it took, and how long, to accomplish this kind of fundamental change. We also see that the real impacts of Title IX in schools would have been slower to realize without federally funded technical assistance centers. As the details show, we should never take equal opportunity for granted, and we are not there yet. More Than Title IX will significantly help us build on hard-earned progress. (Ruta Sevo)

More than Title IX describes the development of gender equity in education and its relationship to a cultural shift in gender roles. The resulting narrative about the dynamic process that took place between the 'ordinary' people of the movement and its institutions and laws is inspirational, and compels us to think about how to build on the lessons that were learned. (Joan Malczewski)

Title IX’s impact on both genders, and on society as a whole, is an important focus of this volume, which merges straightforward history with firsthand accounts from those who took on the monumental task of changing politics and people in the 1960s and 1970s. Also stressed is the vital connection between women’s rights and racial equality. The authors, all senior executives at the non-profit Educational Development Center, also review the changes still needed, as well as evidence of regression in American policy and culture....This volume admirably archives the testimony of brave activists, past and present, who struggle for true parity, and warns against forgetting or distorting the origins of the debate. (Publishers Weekly)

Placing Title IX at the epicenter of a cultural movement, Hanson, Guilfoy, and Pillai chart the ripples this key piece of educational legistlation has made across the surface and substance of American life. Their smart and engrossing history registers the links between educational equality and gender equality at large, evincing how Title IX's reach has extended far beyond the classroom. By beginning at the center and moving outward, the authors probe the interconnected relationship between legislative and cultural shifts that has brought gender relations so far while still anchoring them in place. . . . Serving as an important reminder of legislation's long reach, as well as a call to innovation in multiple sectors, this book illustrates how one act and may actors can set the stage for change. It is an important text for anyone who doubts that the world without Title IX would be a starkly different place. (On Campus With Women)

This valuable volume explores the impact of Title IX, the landmark education amendments of 1972, which covered many realms of academic life.... Each section contains succint but highly useful historical analyses, followed by revealing annotated interviews with renowned and not-so-known figures whose lives have been altered by Title IX.... Recommended. (Choice)

Is the glass half full or half empty when it comes to gender equity in education? This valuable and comprehensive work highlights the major transformations that have occurred since the 1970s but never loses sight of how much more remains to be done. The stories of individual activists are especially illuminating. (Susan Ware)

Format: Hardcover
The last several decades have seen sweeping cultural changes, especially in gender, race, and ethnicity, many of which are reflected in our educational rules and regulations. As an equity educator, researcher, and policy-adviser, I have often struggled to help others understand how the rules and regulations protecting our civil rights will never tell the whole story. It is for this reason that the authors of this book went to those who influenced our culture, our schools, and our communities to get the whole story.
This very readable resource uses the personal experiences of change agents to tell the story behind the sweeping cultural change that many of the newer generations take for granted. From classroom teachers, to government agents and community leaders representing diverse backgrounds and genders, the reader gets a broad picture of how much work went on behind the scenes to bring about the changes that laws like Title IX represent.
This book would be a great addition to teacher education curricula, gender and ethnic studies courses, and civil rights classes. It would also be a good resource for researchers and policy-makers looking for lessons learned as we enter a new era of sweeping change in education and society.

While there are gems in the book, I find it more of a scavenger hunt. You have to filter through a lot of feminist fluff to extract valuable details of what and why. Not an easily digestible book. Unfortunately there are not enough books out there on this very important topic that has upended the social dynamics of the western world. So I feel the author could have written 3 volumes on the subject and not gotten it all in.

It's a behind the scenes peek and not a full on forensic analysis of Title IX, but some of the insightful nuggets are worth the read. If done carefully it will change the way you look at the policy of equity...

The book is enriched by the inclusion of a range of personal reflections and insights contributed by equity activists who helped bring about positive changes over the last several decades. The stories remind readers of what a difference individuals and organizations can make. The book is highly readable and inspirational and addresses many issues related to equal opportunity.
