For girls, sports have never been as accessible or as easy to join as it has been for boys. It wasn’t until 1972 that girls could legally play high school sports, where they were protected under Title IX legislation, and a distinct increase in female athletes didn’t show itself until the 1990’s.

Recently, sexual assault has received increased attention in the media.  Major public figures accused of sexual assault dominate the news, and it’s concerning to find that so many victims have experienced some form of assault by a sexual predator.
