Current research areas:
I'm researching the history of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which turned out to be the most important law for U.S. women other than the right to vote. Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in federally- funded education. My research will inform a book-in-progress, Uppity Women: A People's History of Title IX. Along the way, I'm posting video interviews and commentary on my blog, 37 Words (named after the 37 words in Title IX) at sherryboschert.com.
