Celebrate National Girls and Women in Sports Day Tomorrow

Tomorrow, February 3rd, the Women’s Law Project will join Pennsylvania Senator Mary Jo White and Representative Tim Briggs in the Capitol Rotunda to recognize National Girls and Women in Sports Day, an annual event honoring the achievements and participation of girls and women in sports.

The legislators will also talk about legislation they have introduced to help schools, parents and student athletes address gender inequities that persist in Pennsylvania’s high school athletic programs decades after Title IX was enacted.  SB890 and HB2061 require Pennsylvania’s schools to annually compile and disclose information about participation and treatment of athletic programs for grades 7 through 12. The press conference will be held at 1:00 pm in the Capitol Rotunda, Harrisburg, PA.
