To assure equality for all in education, the US Congress passed Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. § 1681). This federal law protects students and employees of educational institutions against sex discrimination, including sexual misconduct. Title IX stipulates that no one, whether male or female, can be -- on the basis of sex -- excluded from participation in, denied benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program, service, or activity that is partially or wholly funded by federal dollars.
