For the past several years, all across America, parents, teachers and local school districts have been having conversations about how best to accommodate the dignity, privacy and safety concerns of students who identify as transgender while also addressing the dignity, privacy and safety concerns of other students.
Today we will hear from five women, from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, explaining why the Obama-era rules turn the purpose of Title IX on its head. How the rules turn a law meant to protect women and girls into a law that allows men who claim to be women the right to enter women-only spaces.
For many Americans, gender identity concerns are a new reality. Rather than follow the Obama administration’s rush to impose a top-down solution on the entire country, we should encourage the American people to have these conversations, consider all of the relevant concerns, and make policies that will best serve all Americans.
