I love it when someone accuses me of playing as a girl, because girls are playing these days is much harder than when I was little. Title IX is to only make an impact in the sport when I was in school. In 1972, received as Title IX, a federal law that schools and universities, federal funds to provide equal opportunities for male and female students, it was found that there is no need to be fair requests. The boys had several opportunities for sport and the girls were cheerleaders. Even then I knew it had to be a cheerleader. The development of sports programs for girls and young women still faced some tough battles for equality. Sports programs are configured to be constantly in order to finance the new sport. Although assumed to be equal, are the programs of many girls still lower than those for children’s programs like children.

There are many girls who are falling through the cracks. Budget cuts, the lack of women coaches and support to poor families, contribute to the decision of a sporty girl. “The high schools in the United States are not providing opportunities for girls to participate in sports, and some are even cutting back on sports opportunities so as to exacerbate existing inequalities between the sexes or to create new ones”, as reported, The National Law Center for Women.
