Title IX documentary shown on WBGU-PBS
“Title IX: Implications for Women in Sport and Education,” a three-part series, is a collaboration between WBGU-PBS and the National Association for Girls and Women in Sport. It chronicles the history and impact of Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments, which mandated gender equity in federally assisted programs and activities.
The series was written and produced by Dr. Janet Parks, Distinguished Teaching
Professor Emeritus of human movement, sport and leisure studies. It premiered Oct. 4 and will continue on Oct. 11 and 18.
Parks and Janna Blais, BGSU senior associate athletics director and senior woman administrator, will lead a discussion of the series at 3 p.m. Oct. 25 in the Pallister Conference Room of Jerome Library. A 20-minute segment, "Unintended Consequences of Title IX," will be shown prior to the discussion, hosted by the Friends of the Libraries.
The three-DVD set was originally designed to be a curriculum and research tool, to be used in a variety of courses to help students understand Title IX and women's sport experiences. Teachers can select chapters to view and discuss, and study questions are included at the end of each chapter.
“From a historical perspective, this documentary series provides viewers the exceptionally rare opportunity to see and hear directly from more than 30 experts in Title IX and women's sport,” said Parks. “From an instructional perspective, it contains information that could transform viewers' understanding of Title IX and its impact on women's experiences in sport and education. I anticipate instructors will find it very useful.”
