House Republicans Will Always Stand Up For Women’s Sports & Against Extreme Democrats' Radical Gender Identity Agenda

  • Women & Girls In Sports Day

Today marks National Girls and Women in Sports Day. Unfortunately, our girls' sports are under constant attack from Extreme Democrats and their woke gender identity agenda. 
In the 118th Congress House Republicans have stood up to the Extreme Democrats' radical gender identity agenda by passing the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act of 2023, which every House Democrat voted against.  This legislation allows women and girls a fair playing field in competitive sports by ensuring that school athletics comply with Title IX's recognition of a person's reproductive biology and genetics at birth. 
IT'S SIMPLE: Biological men should not be able to compete in girls' sports. You're either born a biological man or a biological woman and House Republicans will always fight for girls and women in sports.
House Majority Whip Tom Emmer will be hosting an event highlighting House Republicans' efforts to protect women's sports from Extreme Democrats' woke agenda. Click HERE to watch Majority Whip Emmer's event. 
THE FACTS ABOUT THE PROTECTION OF WOMEN AND GIRLS IN SPORTS ACT OF 2023 (Courtesy of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce Republicans):   

  • Clarifies that a recipient of federal education funding violates Title IX’s prohibition against sex discrimination if the recipient operates, sponsors, or facilitates athletic programs or activities and allows a person whose sex is male to participate in an athletic program or activity that is designated for women or girls.
  • States that sex in the athletic context must be recognized based only on a person’s reproductive biology and genetics at birth.
  • Clarifies that the bill’s provisions do not prohibit schools or institutions from permitting males to practice against women’s sports teams, protecting the long-standing routine of some women’s athletic programs of practicing or scrimmaging against males.
