Education and Training Equity

Education and Training Equity

Overview

Women continue to hold jobs with lower salaries and fewer benefits. They face barriers to employment in job sectors from which they have long been excluded. Job training programs for both adults and students too often reinforce these trends, failing to provide women and girls with competitive skills and a path into non-traditional, well-compensated jobs.

Programs & Initiatives

  • Title IX
    Congress, led by Hawaii Representative Patsy Mink (1927-2002), passed Title IX of the Education Amendments, barring federally funded educational institutions from discriminating on the basis of sex with respect to students and faculty. The legislation fundamentally changed education.
  • Legal Momentum is deeply involved in requiring schools to improve their efforts to prevent sexual assault, domestic violence, and stalking and to respond to survivors. We work to ensure that schools keep students safe from sexual assault by implementing effective, victim-centered policies that comply with Title IX and the Clery Act.
