Elizabeth Kristen Reflects on Legacy in Current Title IX Class Action Case

Elizabeth Kristen (’02), Senior Staff Attorney and Director of the Fair Play for Girls in Sports Project at Legal Aid at Work, was quoted in The New York Times discussing U.S. Representative Patsy T. Mink of Hawaii, the primary creator of Title IX legislation signed into law 50 years ago, as federal judge certifies class in potential landmark Title IX case brought by Hawaii plaintiffs (“Sex Discrimination Case in Hawaii Could Change High School Sports Across the U.S.,” Oct. 22). “The irony is that the month we were there to file in 2018, the state of Hawaii was dedicating a statue to Patsy Mink.”
