Ted Kennedy's legacy: Title IX and Women's Rowing

This past weekend I reflected on the 20+ years that I have been involved with rowing (the majority coaching high school girl's).  The huge growth of women's rowing over the past several decades was directly related to the 1972 title lX Education Amendments that  equalized to some degree to the amount of money spent on men's and women's sports.  Cape Cod Rowing alumni have receive $300,000+ in athletic scholarship over the past 10 years because of title lX.  Ted Kennedy was a major supporter of title lX. Thanks!
