Title IX is a law passed in 1972 that requires gender equity for boys and girls in every educational program that receives federal funding, including athletics.

Former SIU coach and administrator Charlotte West served as a consultant soon after the law passed. WSIU's Brad Palmer sat down with West as she prepares to deliver a presentation tonight on the Carbondale campus entitled, "The Power of Title IX."

That's Charlotte West, who will deliver the Emeritus Faculty Lecture Oct. 25 on "The Power of Title IX." It starts at 7 at Tedrick Auditorium in the Boydston Center, adjacent to SIU Arena. It's free and open to the public.
