An instant ramification of #MeToo Movement
Let it be very clearly known by all local, national, and international readers that although the time and real verification of what is behind the #MeToo movement are very similar to the Title 9 legislation that came about in result of fairness and equality within women’s sports at the collegiate level. And supporting the act then as I do now the only question remains comes in two parts – one, why not? And two, is there anything wrong with it? Of course not!
Title 9 was an equality tactic aimed directly at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) about schools offering the same amount of sporting events and the same amount of scholarships for female athletes as male athletes.
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that:
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
Title IX applies to institutions that receive federal financial assistance from ED, including state and local educational agencies. These agencies include approximately 16,500 local school districts, 7,000 postsecondary institutions, as well as charter schools, for-profit schools, libraries, and museums. Also included are vocational rehabilitation agencies and education agencies of 50 states, the District of Columbia, and territories and possessions of the United States.
Educational programs and activities that receive ED funds must operate in a nondiscriminatory manner. Some key issue areas in which recipients have Title IX obligations are recruitment, admissions, and counseling; financial assistance; athletics; sex-based harassment; treatment of pregnant and parenting students; discipline; single-sex education; and employment. Also, a recipient may not retaliate against any person for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy or made charges, testified or participated in any complaint action under Title IX. For a recipient to retaliate in any way is considered a violation of Title IX. The ED Title IX regulations (Volume 34, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 106) provide additional information about the forms of discrimination prohibited by Title IX.
Now I believe that on a grander scale that involves politicians as well as their cronies, colleagues, and cohorts. Currently, we have a situation in Washington D.C., that clearly has implications around the world that would be a huge deficit first to America, and on to every one of our allies.
It has already been established by the Inspector General of the Justice Department, Michael Horowitz, that former director of the FBI, James Comey, acted “insubordinate” …and clearly outside of the purview of the FBI when fixing a non-indictment and even worse, a “no need for prosecutorial conduct” against Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The IG of the DOJ and well over one hundred witnesses, attorneys, and people who were directly involved in the independent email traffic of Hillary R. Clinton, offered up and told the IG that she did have Confidential and Top-Secret documentation on her personal email device that indeed has placed our nation at risk from a foreign combatant.
I guess what I am trying to say is that female empowerment is awesome in situations that call for it. But, I do hope that they will bring necessary charges against Clinton. Who knows who and what will go down?
