Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sexual discrimination in any form to include any form of sexual harassment and gender discrimination.
Federal law states:
"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 educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
