Abstract or Summary
  • The Law entitled ‘Title IX’ was designed to address the prevalent practice of institutionalized discrimination against women. The law aimed to introduce and reinforce the equal treatment of minorities and women at workplace and educational institutions. Title IX made some significant improvements in the system through the promotion of social justice and the recognition of women’s rights, as explained in this document. To further emphasize the context of the law, this research paper discusses the history of the law in question and how it came into existence. It further explains the situation of women athletes, students and workers before the implementation of Title IX. The The legislative activity brought about by this law and its impact on the education system has been far and wide. Universities have invested significant resources in providing avenues to ensure a safe space for all their students. They continue taking significant measures promoting inclusivity of women and other gender nonconforming individuals, dissuading and penalizing sexual violence and malicious activities involving physical harm. Despite all these actions to endorse gender equity, there exist places where women are victims of degradation and violence till this date. This study briefly addresses some of these problems by touching upon about various procedures and policies available to the students at Oregon State University due to the enactment of Title IX. Moreover, this study consists of information from various primary sources like interviews from OSU officials and a survey conducted at OSU, along with data and information from secondary sources. It also discusses the gaps and challenges faced by university systems in addressing sexual assault issues on campus. Finally, there are some recommendations for college campuses on how to enhance the existing system of dealing with sexual assault cases, and removing the gaps in order to make the compliance of Title IX more efficient.
