UI Radio Forum Series to discuss gender equity
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The Radio Forum Series Athletics at Iowa will discuss
the latest developments in gender equity Saturday, April 27 at 9 p.m. on WSUI-AM910,
and Sunday, April 27 at 1:30 p.m. on WSUI-AM910 and at 5:30 p.m. on KSUI-FM91.7.
Christine Grant, UI director of women's athletics, and Bob Bowlsby, UI director
of men's athletics, will discuss Monday's Supreme Court denial to review lower
court rulings in the Brown University case, thereby sustaining, in effect,
lower court opinions that Brown University discriminated against its female
athletes. Hosted by Bonnie Slatton, the show will address the national effect
the action may have on college athletic departments across the country.
