Now here's an interesting Title IX stat from the Washington Times' coverage of yesterday's commission meeting:
The closest vote yesterday was a 7-6 decision in favor of including report language that cited a 1999 study by the conservative Independent Women's Forum. The study, "Title IX Athletics," showed that students in all-women schools had low interest in sports programs. Participation ranged from 9.2 percent at Smith College to 16.7 percent at Mount Holyoke College, both in Massachusetts....

"They're saying there's a gap without explaining all the factors that account for the gap," Independent Women's Forum spokeswoman Charlotte Hayes said of defenders of Title IX parity policies. "It isn't discrimination. Women express interest in going out for college athletics at a lower rate than men. It's just a fact of life."

And unlike the Post story, this one, by George Archibald, provides live quotes from both sides of the dispute, including as above those scary opponents of the current regime. You never know in these cases whether it's the reporter, the editor, or both.
