TUNE IN: Press conference marking the introduction of Senator Joni Ernst’s and Congresswoman Claudia Tenney’s bicameral resolution recognizing the week in late June, surrounding the June 23rd anniversary of Title IX, as National Women’s Sports Week. This resolution seeks to celebrate the contributions of individual American female athletes; honor the coaches and parents who support female athletes; promote equal access to athletic opportunities for members of both sexes; support the commitment of the United States to supporting female athletes; and advance legislative efforts to protect single-sex sports. National Women’s Sports Week was initiated by Independent Women’s Voice’s sister organization, Independent Women’s Forum (IWF), in 2022 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Title IX; and it will be formally established through joint resolutions in the U.S. House and Senate.
