Legislation Introduced to Protect Women’s Sports 

Senator Tuberville was the head football coach at Auburn. 

Senator Tommy Tuberville of Alabama has re-introduced legislation in the Senate that would protect women’s sports from having men compete. The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act would preserve protections under Title IX and ensure that competition for female athletes is safe and fair. 

The legislative re-introduction comes as the Department of Education is set to implement new rules in May that allow biological males to compete in girls’ and women’s sports beginning in the 2023-2024 school year. 

Senator Tuberville wrote in an op-ed, “That level playing field is now under attack by activists who care more about politics than what’s best for female athletes. Their undoing of the success of Title IX, by forcing institutions to allow biological males to compete against women and girls, is an obscene distortion of the law and a slap in the face to hardworking female athletes across the country.” 

He added, “Our leaders, especially our representatives in Congress, do not have the right to say they support girls and women if they stand by and do nothing as women’s opportunities are stripped away.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Senator Tuberville as he seeks to protect women’s sports.
  • For members of the Senate as they consider this legislation to safeguard Title IX for biological females.
