This week I’m linking to some of my favorite blog posts from this year, and especially ones that drew some vigorous, and even heated, discussion. As you’ll see, most of them pertain to women’s sports but there are some other subjects I’ll revisit here.
The first installment is my post from April 27 entitled “The real elephant of Title IX compliance.” I wrote it at the start of a series of gender equity stories in The New York Times that reflects so much of what I consider wrong-headed thinking on this topic.
Far too often, the mainstream media world I’ve inhabited most of my career has been terrified to address Title IX and gender equity from anything but the perspective of women’s sports activists, attorneys, academics and others who’ve made this their life’s work.
This post — and do read the comments — also triggered a longer project on women’s sports that I posted in June and that I will be revisiting this week as well.
