Female athletes, lawmakers organize against Biden plans to redefine ‘sex,’ erase campus due process
College volleyball player says she lives in fear of the NCAA “and the power that they have over me because of my scholarship.”

Fifty years after the passage of Title IX, the Biden administration faces an uphill nationwide battle as it tries to rewrite the sex discrimination law around gender identity and remove the Trump administration’s due process protections in campus sexual misconduct proceedings.

Female athletes told “Just the News, Not Noise” about their grassroots protest and the risk of cancellation they face. Lawmakers shared legislative strategies, and an attorney general promised litigation if administrative hurdles don’t do the job.

The dominance of University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, the first openly transgender athlete to win an NCAA Division 1 national championship, has spurred much of the activism.

Women for Fairness in Sports (WomenFINS) President Marshi Smith said its March letter to the NCAA Board of Governors on behalf of University of Arizona swimming alumni is now up to 44 signatures.
