Magazine of the Society of Women Engineers: Updated Title IX Rules to Bring Clarity to Sex Discrimination Claims

March 14. 2023

Maha Ibrahim (Senior Attorney for Litigation & Policy, and Managing Attorney of Ending Sexual Violence in Education Program) is featured in a Magazine for the Society of Women Engineers article about the Biden Administration’s new Title IX rules:

Biden’s proposed changes, she says, “mean that the law [will] explicitly recognize LGBTQI’s students’ sex and gender identities as protected” — and will create a new federal baseline so the protections apply across the board.

“It’s one of the greatest civil rights advancements for gender of the last 50 years,” said Ibrahim…


As for men challenging Title IX as discriminatory, Equal Rights Access attorney Ibrahim said, “Nothing in the Biden regulations has been written to hinder equal access to education. But there is a really energetic and dedicated opposition to civil rights in this country,” she said.

“There are people who dedicate their whole lives to dismantling civil rights. They are obsessed with finding ways to interpret all sorts of laws, including Title IX, to meet their anti-equality agenda. They will try to force a legal analysis of any civil rights law that perverts its original purpose.”
