Last Friday, Concerned Women for America (CWA) filed a formal Civil Rights Complaint under Title IX with the U.S. Department of Education against the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) for refusing to protect the rights of college female athletes under federal law. On that same day, UPenn’s transgendered male athlete, Lia Thomas, stole first place in the 500-yard freestyle race beating out true female athletes.

I am excited to announce that CWA’s Legal Counsel, Mario Diaz, will be joining our all-star lineup of speakers for our March 31 Saving Women’s Sport webinar. Mario will discuss the Civil Rights Complaint and what it could mean for female athletes in Pennsylvania and across the nation.

Joining Mario will be the sponsor and co-sponsor of Pennsylvania’s Save Women’s Sports bill, State Rep. Barbara Gleim (R-District 199) and State Rep. Stephanie Borowicz (R-District 76).

Protecting fairness and equality for women and girls in sports should not be a partisan issue. Female athletes today are facing the injustice of allowing transgender male athletes to participate in sports designated for women and girls.

I hope you will join us and please feel free to share this email with like-minded friends and family!
