Om boka

Present-day female students most likely do not remember a time without Title IX. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects students from sex-based discrimination and exclusion in education programs or activities. Title IX benefits all women, especially female athletes, and protects women from not having equal access to the opportunities their male counterparts have. These two memoirs recount the lives of Celeste Callahan and Dottie Dorion who were athletes before Title IX was passed. Callahan and Dorion were runners and triathletes who constantly battled gender norms and stereotypes. The memoirs of the two athletes consist of oral and written accounts stitched together to form their journey through sport against societal standards and pressures.
