ESPN On Yale And Title IX

ESPN June 2012

On 8 February, 2012, HTBS’s Greg Denieffe wrote a nice article celebrating women’s rowing, Women in Rowing – Rocking the Boat. Among other things, Greg wrote about the film Hero for Daisy which features Chris Ernst, who together with her 1976 crew mates at Yale, did a spectacular protest at the Yale athletic department because of the unfairness the women felt, referring to the now famous Title IX.

Lo and behold, in the June issue of the ESPN Magazine, Steve Wulf has a well-written history article about the Yale women crew and Title IX, and, writes the magazine, it’s time to set the record straight what actually happened. According to Wulf, Senator John Kerry once called Chris Ernst the Rosa Parks of Title IX. Read this great article here.
