Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that applies to all schools, like Westminster, that receive federal funding. Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all education and employment programs and activities. Sex includes gender, gender identity or expression, nonconformity with gender stereotypes, and sexual orientation.
The text of the law states:
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. 20 U.S.C. §1681(a).
