Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972, 20 U.S.C. ch. 38 §1681 et seq is a federal civil rights law that prohibits educational programs that receive federal funding from discriminating on the basis of sex: "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
Some key areas in which covered schools have Title IX obligations are: recruitment, admissions, and counseling; financial assistance; athletics; sex-based harassment; treatment of pregnant and parenting students; discipline; single-sex education; and employment. Also, a recipient may not retaliate against any person for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy. The law is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Civil Rights, see https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/docs/tix_dis.html
