Published 9:00am Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Stanley will address the role that Title IX has played in equalizing the role of women in athletics and the difference it has made in the contributions of women in the sports world.  Her story is an example of how far women’s presence in and contributions to athletics has come.

She will touch base on how Title IX helped gain equality for young women in athletics in high school and in college, based on her personal experience in coaching her daughters and other young women. Jan’s account of her experiences is inspirational and a true success story.

AAUW (American Association of University Women) is a nationwide network of university women whose goal is to advance equality for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.

The Tryon Branch of AAUW will meet Monday, Feb. 25 at 1:30 p.m. at the Tryon Presbyterian Fellowship Hall.  The meeting is open to the public.

Refreshments will be served.
