The Know Your Title IX campaign, which our own Alexandra helped launch, is working to ensure that all students know that colleges in fact have a legal obligation under Title IX, which prevents gender discrimination in education, to create a safe learning environment for all their students–and is calling on the federal government to enforce the landmark law.
