Sports Lawyer and Former Olympian Makes the Case for the Female Sports Category
This week on the Dr. Phil Show, Olympic champion, women’s sports advocate, and lawyer Nancy Hogshead-Makar speaks on the importance of the female sports category. She explains “issues related to transgender eligibility in sport and urges sport to create new categories for transgender women AND men.
“Sport achieves its diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) goals with categories – they run throughout sport, including age, weight, geography and equipment categories. We need the female categories to ensure safety & fairness for females, as well as equal opportunities, scholarships and treatment,” she said. “Title IX is 50, we need to assure it remains strong.”
