South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is launching a new coalition to protect Title IX and women’s sports.
Noem addressed concerns about her position on protecting women’s sports under threat from the Biden regime.
“These biological differences lead to very different athletic capabilities,” Noem said. “Put simply, it is fundamentally unfair for men to compete in women’s sports.”
“And it’s a violation of Title IX,” she said.
Gov. Noem said the issue is personal to her, as she has two girls who played college sports.
“It’s not enough to say only girls should play girls sports,” Noem said. “We need to take action that actually does good. And we need to defend Title IX.”
“A participation trophy isn’t going to cut it,” she said.
Noem explained how a lawsuit against the NCAA would likely not succeed, if her state passed a law upholding Title IX.
“So today we’re announcing we are forming a coalition called DefendTitleIXNow.com,” Noem said. “Once we have enough states on board, a coalition brought big enough where the NCAA cannot possibly punish us all, then we can guarantee fairness at the collegiate level.”
Former NFL stars Herschel Walker and Jack Brewer are part of Noem’s new group.
