Title IX

Purdue University


A former Purdue University student is suing the school and several of its officials for what he calls reverse discrimination during a sexual assault investigation.

He's the second student to sue an Indiana college claiming the application of federal Title IX legislation is biased against men.

The unnamed male student, referred to in court documents only as “John Doe,” says he was suspended as a student and dismissed from the Navy ROTC program after an unnamed female student accused him of groping her while she was asleep during the Fall 2015 semester.

The Progress of Title IX 40 Years Later

Jun 23, 2012

Saturday marked the 40th anniversary of President Richard Nixon signing Title Nine into law.  

The goal of the legislation was to ensure the same opportunities for women as men in high school and college.

AS WBAA’s  Sam Klemet reports, the law has opened new doors for women, particularly in sports, but inequality still exists.

It’s a beautiful night at Lafayette’s Murdock Park.   A crowd of about 50 has gathered around a fence that encloses a dusty softball diamond.
