One program that we are really excited about is the Title IX 50th Anniversary lecture on Monday, November 14 at 6 PM, featuring sisters Sheri and Peggy Brenden and their firsthand experience in influencing the passage and interpretation of Title IX. Peggy played tennis and wanted to compete on her high school team. But in Minnesota in 1972, the only way onto the tennis court was with the boys. She went to federal court, setting a legal precedent for schools before the passage of Title IX. Peggy’s younger sister Sheri Brenden, a former research librarian who worked for two of Minnesota’s largest law firms and as a reporter for the St. Cloud Daily Times, shares Peggy’s story in the book Break Point: Two Minnesota Athletes and the Road to Title IX, which is set to be released in December of 2022.
