As your Columbus movers, E.E. Ward has not only an unparalleled ability to move goods anywhere in the world with a dedication to excellence, but also has a sincere spirit of devotion to social equality. As a sponsor and sincere friend of the Women’s Fund of Central Ohio, E.E. Ward is proud to witness the success and influence this non-profit organization has so far achieved. At the 40th anniversary of Title IX, E.E. Ward would like to acknowledge the outstanding work performed by the Women’s Fund on behalf of equality for women and girls. E.E. Ward pledges to continue our support of women’s equal status and opportunities to make positive contributions to our community.
For those who have never heard about Title IX or think it only applies to sports, it is a law passed in 1972 that requires gender equity for boys and girls in every educational program that receives federal funding. There are 10 key areas addressed by this law which are: Access to Higher Education, Career Education, Education for Pregnant and Parenting Students, Employment, Learning Environment, Math and Science, Sexual Harassment, Standardized Testing, and Technology. Although Title IX is best known for breaking down barriers in sports for women and girls, it also opens the door for girls to pursue math and science, requires fair treatment for pregnant and parenting students, and protects students from bullying and sexual harassment, among other things.
Even though now women are said to gain more rights and become more influential than they ever historically accomplished, discrimination is still a main social challenge for every country and race. In the spirit of Title IX, we salute the work and dedication of groups like the Women’s Fund. Women and girls should know no boundaries when it comes to achieving their dreams.
