This week, the Committee on Education and the Workforce introduced the so-called “Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act” (H.R. 734), which would stipulate that Title IX compliance requires a federal ban of transgender & intersex girls and women from participating in sports.
The passage of this bill would prevent transgender & intersex women and girls across the country from accessing the proven mental and physical benefits of sport, and it fails to take into account recent research and policies at the highest level of sport which affirm that transgender women do not have an inherent advantage in sports.
