ICYMI: @EdWorkforceCmte Defends 52-year-old Title IX Protections for Women and Girls

Committee Advances Congressional Review Act Resolution to Preserve Protections Undermined by Biden Administration

In Case You Missed It, as the nation recognizes the 52nd anniversary of Title IX, the landmark protections that have provided women and girls equal opportunities and safe single-sex spaces are under attack. The Committee on Education and the Workforce, chaired by Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), took action to defend the original intent of Title IX.

H.J. Res. 165, a Congressional Review Act resolution to nullify the Biden administration’s Title IX rule, passed the Committee with a vote of 24 to 16. Rep. Mary Miller (R-IL) sponsored the legislation. The Biden administration’s proposed rule allows men to enter women’s and girls’ private spaces.

Chairwoman Foxx said this of the resolution:

“This resolution does nothing more than reinforce a biological and common-sense reality that we all know deep-down is true. Women should be safe in intimate spaces, and men should not compete in women’s sports.

“Sex differences are biological, an inescapable fact acknowledged by most Americans. The Biden rule to allow men to intrude into women’s spaces and take opportunities away from women is deeply unsettling and, frankly, unnatural.

“Moreover, the rule sets an uneasy precedent. Where does the destruction and erasure of women’s spaces end? The softball field? The locker room? The bathroom? The prison cell? We should reject this aberration of an executive action and instead support Rep. Miller’s CRA resolution that would strengthen Title IX protections for young females.”

WATCH Rep. Miller champion this important effort:

The legislation now awaits consideration by the full U.S. House of Representatives.
