Evening the Odds: Is Title IX Working?

In 1972 Title IX was established, a civil rights act that prohibits gender discrimination at any school that receives federal funds. In this program, Elizabeth Brackett of WTTS in Chicago, goes to Indian University -- alma mater of Olympic diving medalists Lesley Bush and Cynthia Potter -- in an investigation of higher education's Title IX track record in the area of sports. Although Indiana University is working diligently to meet Title IX conditions by creating new athletics programs and spreading out scholarship dollars, only seven Division 1 schools have met the Title IX standards for gender equity.
