Taking the Ball into Their Own Hands: Women and the Road to Title IX

“Equality is not a favor, it’s a right,” said Gladys Ziemer the longtime Director Women’s Athletics and the women’s basketball coach at St. Cloud State University. This photographic exhibit celebrates Title IX, the 1972 educational amendment that worked to change long-held stereotypes and perceptions of roles for men and women.
