Feedback on Title IX at 50
Once again, you have created a stellar issue in “Title IX at 50” [March 2022].
As our nation still struggles
with the place of women in all of
society, but especially in male-dominated “arenas,” it is crucial
that everyone read about the
barriers to women.
It is also somewhat heartening
to learn of these women warriors
while watching the demeaning
treatment of a potential first
Black female Supreme Court
justice. I say somewhat simply
because we have barely run the
first mile in a marathon.
I am proud of my alma mater
and equally so of your ability to
reflect the good, the bad, and
our constant effort carve an

I never got my copy of Minnesota
Alumni in the mail because of
being in Arizona and our mail getting all screwed up, but I picked
up one up at McNamara the other
night and just read it!
What a fabulous issue! The
stories were so good and dug so
deep! It was really inspiring.
I hope I can pick up a few more
copies when I get back. I would
like to give them to a few friends
and also to my granddaughters.
Congrats! It is a real contribution to continued progress.
Unfortunately, there is still work

Thank you very much for excellent
editions of Minnesota Alumni. I
learn a lot and enjoy good writing.

I just read the Minnesota Alumni
articles on Title IX and can’t stop
smiling (Linda Roberts, Gretchen
Larson, Kathy Eiland!!!)
I’m currently 62 and have a
black eye from getting a soccer
ball kicked into my face by my
own daughter—if only it [had
been from one] of my granddaughters! A dream come true
to play sports with girls, young
and old. Thanks for making me
feel young again!

and the trauma services
are needed so badly.
Cheers to your success!
