STILL A WAYS TO GO: WOMEN'S SPORTS FOUNDATION ISSUES REPORT
Published June 19, 1997
The Women's Sports Foundation released its "Gender Equity Report Card" yesterday, where Foundation Trustee Dr. Don Sabo analyzed 767 NCAA schools and issued each institution a grade based on athletic participation, scholarship allocations, recruitment spending, operating expenditures and composite GPA. Sabo: "Our findings suggest that many colleges and universities are allocating resources and opportunities at a roughly 2-1 ratio between male athletes and female athletes despite the fact that women outnumber men on most campuses. In addition, it is proven that the rise of women's sports over the past 18 years has not come at the expense of men's programs but rather the misallocation of funds has caused the elimination of men's non-revenue sports programs." The report, for the '95-96 school year, showed that while women were 53% of all undergraduate students, they were only 37% of all NCAA athletes, and received $142.6M less scholarship aid than males. Additionally, men's teams in the study spent over $255M more on operating expenses than women (WSF). Yesterday U.S. Sen. Carol Moseley-Braun (D-IL) and U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) announced legislation "designed to put more teeth" in Title IX. "Fair Play Act" would require colleges to report to the Department of Education expenditures on men's and women's sports, respectively (Kathy Orton, WASHINGTON POST, 6/19).
