Sharrow presents dissertation research

Libby Sharrow.jpgLibby Sharrow (MPP '04), Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Political Science, presented her dissertation research as part of The Gender, Sexuality, Power and Politics Colloquium on March 8, 2013.

Libby's abstract:

How does public policy come to affect social and political understandings of sex and gender? Her talk evaluated the case of Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, exploring how political debates over policy implementation and design have constituted sex as a category of policy, and the "female athlete" as a political identity. By analyzing the emergence of the "female athlete" as a political identity over the past forty years, she argued that policy has forged the political category of sex, in the policy domain of athletics, with particularly gendered, racialized, classed, and able-bodied implications.
