Whitmer Types Process Drive To Assist Girls, Ladies In Sports activities

From the Related Press — Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has created a process drive to assist and promote alternatives for women and girls in sports activities. The group shaped Monday by an government order should make preliminary findings and proposals earlier than March 2021. The 15-member process drive shall be chaired by Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, who previously led a nonprofit devoted to advancing equality by way of sports activities. Whitmer says women and girls deserve the identical alternatives as male athletes. She says even with the enactment of Title IX almost 50 years in the past, sports activities alternatives for women and girls stay restricted, and extra work stays to even the taking part in area. Whitmer says only one Division 1 collegiate athletic program in Michigan is led by a girl. Benson says Michigan has an opportunity to turn into a “nationwide mannequin.”
