New Jersey Democratic Assemblyman John J. Burzichelli has introduced legislation to undermine decades of work to create parity for girls in sports. A.B. 2224 allows a boy who identifies as a girl to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with the pupil’s gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil’s records. The bill is similar to a California effort that decimated that state’s version of Title Nine.
In 2014, it is a Democratic priority to undo efforts to create parity in opportunity for girls.
