- The Biden administration official who leads the federal agency that enforces Title IX refused on Tuesday to define a “woman” under oath.
- In the midst of a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing, Education Secretary Miguel Cardona danced around the question when asked by Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA), who focused his inquiry on proposed Title IX changes that seek to block policies that “categorically” ban transgender athletes from school sports teams that match their gender identity, but not their biological sex.
- After Clyde explained how Title IX is meant to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs, which he noted had a “historic impact on and girls in women’s sports,” the congressman asked Cardona to define a “woman” while stressing the importance that male and female athletes continue to receive appropriate funding.
