Our Senior Staff Attorney and Director of the Pregnant Scholar Initiative, Jessica Lee, was featured at several events that celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Title IX. Watch her speak at the National Women’s Law Center and the 19th News events on how to elevate Title IX’s protections for pregnant and parenting students.
Passed on June 23rd in 1972, Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in educational programs. Since then, Title IX has been clarified to include protections against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Today, the Department of Education released new Title IX regulations that clearly protect lactation and contain language clarifying pregnancy discrimination that will protect pregnant or parenting students.
