Title IX 50th Anniversary with Sheri and Peggy Brenden

Title IX 50th Anniversary with Sheri and Peggy Brenden

Join sisters Sheri and Peggy Brenden as they discuss and commemorate the 50th anniversary of Title IX! 

Peggy will share her firsthand experience from her 1972 court case and how it influenced the passage and interpretation of Title IX. Peggy played tennis and wanted to compete on her high school team. But in Minnesota in 1972, the only way onto the tennis court was with the boys. She went to federal court, setting a legal precedent for schools before the passage of Title IX. 

Peggy's younger sister Sheri Brenden, a former research librarian who worked for two of Minnesota's largest law firms and as a reporter for the St. Cloud Daily Times, shares Peggy's story in the book Break Point: Two Minnesota Athletes and the Road to Title IX, which is set to be released in December of 2022.

Both women will discuss how athletic participation for girls and women has been impacted in the last 50 years and address some of the challenges that remain.
