Turning Points in History
I chose the topic Title IX because I am really interested in women’s rights and sports so I felt this topic would help me learn more about it. I found this topic by talking to my teacher and my family. Also I felt that Title IX would definitely fit under the NHD theme for this year, turning points in history. Title IX fits the NHD theme of turning points of history because it was a turning point for women’s rights as well as for both men and women’s sports. Without Title IX, lots of women would not be able to play sports in high school, college, or even attend college. Title IX changed women’s rights and what women can achieve. To conduct my research, I went to the library and I found different books that had to do with what Title IX is, how it affects women and men, and how Title IX changed sports. Next, I researched at home and found many online resources that could help me. These included websites, online magazines, online interviews, and blogs that had to do with Title IX and people’s opinion on it. Title IX has “leveled the playing field” for women all around the US.
