Twenty-five years ago Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 mandated that women not be discriminated against in any educational institution receiving federal funds. Although Title IX does not mention sport specifically it is clear that sport is one of those activities covered. When you see the hype being generated by the arrival of the WNBA, you might think that Title IX has been a major success. It has not.
