A Place on the Team is the inside story of how Title IX revolutionized American sports. The federal law guaranteeing womens rights in education, Title IX opened gymnasiums and playing fields to millions of young women previously locked out. Journalist Welch Suggs chronicles both the laws successes and failures-the exciting opportunities for women as well as the commercial and recruiting pressures of modern-day athletics.

Enlivened with tales from Suggss reportage, the book clears up the muddle of interpretation and opinion surrounding Title IX. It provides not only a lucid description of how courts and colleges have read (and misread) the law, but also compelling portraits of the people who made womens sports a vibrant feature of American life.

Whats more, the book provides the first history of the laws evolution since its passage in 1972. Suggs details thirty years of struggles for equal rights on the playing field. Schools dragged their feet, offering token efforts for women and girls, until the courts made it clear that women had to be treated on par with men. Those decisions set the stage for some of the most celebrated moments in sports, such as the Womens World Cup in soccer and the Womens Final Four in NCAA basketball.

Title IX is not without its critics. Wrestlers and other male athletes say colleges have cut their teams to comply with the law, and Suggs tells their stories as well.

With the chronicles of Pat Summitt, Anson Dorrance, and others who shaped womens sports, A Place on the Team is a must-read not only for sports buffs but also for parents of every young woman who enters the arena of competitive sports.
