’37 Words’ Preview

Title IX was passed in 1972. It is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in any education organization that receives federal funding. The purpose actually had nothing to do with sports, but sports is where Title IX has had a huge impact for women’s equality.

According to the ESPN press release, “37 Words” tells the story of “the hard-fought battle to push for equal rights in education and athletics; the decades-spanning effort to nullify its impact; and the rippling impacts of the landmark civil rights law that continue to resonate today.”

The four-part series “charts the spectacular transformation that 37 words have inspired in American culture and the lives of women, as well as the many ways in which the spirit of this bold law has yet to be fully realized.”

The title, “37 Words,” refers to the text of Title IX, which reads, “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.”

The docuseries was filmed as part of ESPN’s celebration of Title IX’s 50th anniversary.

“This is an important milestone for Title IX and we wanted to find creative ways to celebrate it across ESPN and The Walt Disney Company. Whether it is our commitment to a rich package of live women’s sports highlighting the stories of female athletes across our platforms, the many talented women working in front of the camera, or the diverse teams behind the content we create, our commitment to elevating women in sports is unwavering. Fifty/50 has been an incredible endeavor made possible by so many at the company, and I have no doubt sports fans will appreciate the extraordinary work they have created,” said Jimmy Pitaro, chairman of ESPN and Sports Content.

In addition to the docuseries, ESPN is also producing a companion podcast, which will feature Allison Glock interviewing notable figures featured in and behind the camera on the docuseries.

The first two episodes of “37 Words,” titled “Part 1: Too Pushy for a Woman” and “Part 2: These Are Our Bodies,” premiere on June 21 at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on ESPN; the next two episodes, titled “Part 3: The Daughters of Title IX” and “Part 4: Generation Next,” air at the same time on June 28.
