Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities. It states:

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
