Despite the life-long physical, emotional, academic, and economic benefits that participation in sports offers girls and young women, 45 years after the passage of Title IX, many schools are still failing to create an equal playing field for girls.

In fact, across the U.S., girls have 1.2 million fewer chances to play sports in high school compared to boys. And unfortunately Pennsylvania is no exception.

The Women’s Law Project is thrilled to invite you to the launch of FAIR:PLAY, an innovative website that will enable students, parents and community members to learn how well their school is performing and provide users the tools they need to advocate for FAIR PLAY for PA’s girls!

This creative new tool was developed during a weekend hackathon by an energetic group of local STEM students, primarily young women, supervised by a volunteer team of professional women coders!

We hope you will come celebrate this exciting example of STEM learning in action. Enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres with old friends and new. Demo the new website in Google's state-of-the-art offices in Bakery Square. And hear from local athletes and girls themselves about why it matters, and what you can do to help level the playing field!
