About this capture
Cato Upcoming Events http://www.cato.org/events/calendar.html events@cato.org The Cato Institute seeks to broaden the parameters of public policy debate to allow consideration of the traditional American principles of limited government, individual liberty, free markets and peace. Toward that goal, the Institute strives to achieve greater involvement of the intelligent, concerned lay public in questions of policy and the proper role of government. en-us​Wed, 20 Jun 2012 12:00:00 -0400 Policy Forum: "40 Years of Title IX: Blessing, Curse, or Something in Between?" | June 20 @ 12:00 pm​http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CatoEvents/~3/yPIhP0d0JtI/event.php​<p></p> <p><p>On June 23, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 &#8212; which requires gender equity in all federally funded education programs &#8212; will turn 40 years old. The law is considered a major success by many, opening opportunities for women that they believe would not otherwise have existed. But adulation for Title IX isn&#8217;t universal, especially when it comes to the negative effect some maintain it has had on men&#8217;s intercollegiate sports. And there are more fundamental questions: Is there something wrong with the law because it focuses disproportionately on sports? Could it make academics a contentious battleground if its focus were turned from sports? Is it constitutional? And, are its curbs on freedom worth its benefits? Please join us for a lively discussion of this landmark law.</p></p><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=yPIhP0d0JtI:Qm--HW8jz2I:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=yPIhP0d0JtI:Qm--HW8jz2I:dnMXMwOfBR0"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?d=dnMXMwOfBR0" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=yPIhP0d0JtI:Qm--HW8jz2I:F7zBnMyn0Lo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?i=yPIhP0d0JtI:Qm--HW8jz2I:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=yPIhP0d0JtI:Qm--HW8jz2I:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?i=yPIhP0d0JtI:Qm--HW8jz2I:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=yPIhP0d0JtI:Qm--HW8jz2I:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=yPIhP0d0JtI:Qm--HW8jz2I:l6gmwiTKsz0"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?d=l6gmwiTKsz0" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=yPIhP0d0JtI:Qm--HW8jz2I:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?i=yPIhP0d0JtI:Qm--HW8jz2I:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/CatoEvents/~4/yPIhP0d0JtI" height="1" width="1"/>
