New Title IX rules threaten female sports and due process

On April 19th, the Biden Administration released new rules “broadening the scope of Title IX,” the 1972 law prohibiting sex discrimination in educational programs. The new rules add “gender identity” to the law, roll back regulations aimed at ensuring due process for those accused of harassment or assault, and effectively demand use of “preferred pronouns,” leading many to view the changes as nothing less than destruction of women’s sex based protections in colleges and universities across America and right to compete on fair ground in sport, as well as forcing people to refer to men identifying as women as “she,” and creating a system wherein anyone accused of harassment or assault can have their lives destroyed with little recourse. 

In this episode, I speak with Julie Hamill, a child advocate, lawyer, and Palos Verdes School Board Member, about the changes and their impact.
