Kane will take the floor with Minnesota Lynx on Title IX anniversary

KaneMJ-2005.jpgThe WNBA championship team Minnesota Lynx have featured Mary Jo Kane in a Web article on Title IX and the gains in women's sports participation over the last 40 years. Dr. Kane, sport sociology professor and director of the Tucker Center, will be spending June 23, the day 40 years ago that Title IX was signed into federal law, celebrating with the Lynx, wearing a commemorative jersey with the Roman numeral "IX" and being center stage for an in-game spotlight.

Kane is glad to spend June 23 celebrating Title IX's 40th anniversary with the Lynx. "I'm really proud of the Lynx," she said. "I'm just proud of them as somebody who lives in the Twin Cities to call them my team."
