In this episode…

50 years ago, the Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 was passed into law. Unfortunately, women student athletes still face inequality today. What can women in athletics do to continue the fight and make sure they are given equal support and opportunities?

Erika Beisler and Lauren Greenberg faced the same dilemma as freshmen women athletes in Dartmouth College more than 30 years ago. Throughout their college years, they actively voiced their concerns to the administration and eventually to the Department of Education. They knew something was wrong and did everything in their power to make sure these errors were corrected.

In this episode of the Sports Up Podcast, Meredith Syms sits down with Erika Beisler and Lauren Greenberg. The two talk about the discrimination and unfair treatment they received as college women athletes and how they fought to keep their college accountable. Erika and Lauren share the difficulties they faced, how they filed a formal complaint against their school, and why they never gave up fighting for equality for women in athletics.
