A nonfiction picture book introduction to the history and importance of Title IX as civil rights legislature.

It takes just three to say, “It isn’t fair.”

And only four to say, “We’ll fight for you.”

But it took thirty-seven words to change America forever.

This important book shines a light on how a few groundbreaking women denounced institutional injustice and created legislation that would protect and unite countless vulnerable people:

“No person in the U.S. shall, on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal aid.” —Title IX

From the bestselling creators of Counting on Katherine, here is a new picture book celebrating women’s history, American history, and the value of overcoming adversity to stand up for what is right. For fans of Shaking Things Up: 14 Young Women Who Changed the World.
