‘On the right side of history’: Parents defending education adviser explains fight to save Title IX


Parents Defending Education filed a lawsuit on April 29 against the Biden administration’s reinterpretation of Title IX allowing males in female sports and private spaces.

The parental rights organization joined the Independent Women’s Forum, Speech First, and the states of Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and South Carolina in challenging President Joe Biden’s rule change to the 1972 federal law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in federally funded education programs across the nation.

The Biden administration’s revisions seek to add “gender identity” to the list of sex-based protections. Although officials don’t include a formal definition of “gender identity” in the revised rule, legal experts say it would allow males to participate in girls and women’s sports, use female-only locker rooms and bathrooms, bunk with females in hotel rooms during overnight school trips, and more.

The reinterpretation would also limit how individuals accused of sexual harassment can defend themselves.

If not overturned, the rule change—finalized in April—will take effect in August.

Michele Exner, senior adviser to Parents Defending Education, discussed the future of Title IX with “The Daily Signal Podcast.

“It’s an anti-woman, anti-girl policy,” Exner told The Daily Signal.

Exner spoke to The Daily Signal at the recent Road to Majority conference of the Faith & Freedom Coalition in Washington, D.C., where she took part in a panel discussion about parental rights in education alongside American Parents Coalition Executive Director Alleigh Marré.
