USA Today: How schools will treat sexual misconduct is changing. Who’s saying what about Title IX?
September 13. 2022
ERA Senior Attorney for Ending Sexual Violence in Education, Maha Ibrahim, is quoted in a USA Today article about the Biden Administration’s proposed new Title IX regulations and ERA’s official comment to the Department of Education about the regulations.
To bypass the USA Today pay wall, read the article on Yahoo News.
“We’re living at one of those seminal forks in the road for civil rights in gender equity,” said Maha Ibrahim, a lawyer for the national nonprofit Equal Rights Advocates. “It’s not just the 50th anniversary of Title IX. It’s our own moment of 1972. It’s 2022, and this rule is going to be a generation-defining moment for the future generations.”
Of ERA, the article also says: “The group urged its supporters to ask the Biden administration for additional protections for LGBTQ+ students, ‘trauma-informed training for all school employees involved in the Title IX process,’ ‘protections for students who choose to speak publicly about sexual violence’ ‘harassment or gender discrimination they experienced’ and ‘options for high school students to consult a school employee confidentially about an incident without mandating an official Title IX report.'”
