Patricia Heaton :

Recently I took my son for a college tour in the Midwest … I ate what I felt like eating, i realize if I was still living in Ohio that I ’d be 30 pounds heavier and an alcoholic. There’s something about being there that makes me want to drink beer all day, eat cheese fries and eat stuffed French toast for breakfast.

John McEnroe :

That's the part that gnaws at the players. I don't care if he throws a chair on the court or does what he does, the part that I have a problem with, and I am assuming 99 percent of the rest of the Tour do, is when you go out there and don't seem like you are giving an effort half of the time for whatever reason. I don't know why, I am not Sigmund Freud!

Linn Grant :

I just hope that people recognize women's golf more, sponsors go to the Ladies European Tour and, hopefully, this pumps up the women's game a little bit more, i didn't see it( the lead) until the 13th green, where the screen was, and it was a little bit( of a shock). I thought maybe three or four ahead, but then when I saw eight, I was like I can actually breathe out a little bit and go on and do my thing.

Charlie was the first African-American to earn a PGA tour card – often facing indignity and injustice even as he faced the competition, though his best golf was already behind him, he proved that he belonged... blazing a trail for future generations of athletes in America.

Ahead of Title IX’s 52nd Anniversary and Women’s Sports Week, Our Bodies, Our Sports Tour Bus Vandalized By Anti-Woman, Trans Rights Activists

 alt=

The Our Bodies, Our Sports “Take Back Title IX” Summer 2024 Bus Tour is en route to the White House in Washington, D.C.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, just two days ahead of the 52nd anniversary of Title IX, Independent Women’s Forum (IWF) announced vandals defaced nearly every inch of the “Take Back Title IX” tour bus overnight following an Our Bodies, Our Sports coalition “Take Back Title IX” Summer 2024 Bus Tour rally in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. The event drew a large crowd of supporters and featured remarks from a lineup of female athletes and leading women’s advocates, including former UNC-Chapel Hill Women’s Basketball Coach Sylvia Hatchell, who are touring the country to help protect equal athletic opportunity for women and girls and stop the Biden administration’s illegal Title IX regulations from taking effect on August 1.

Since May 29, the Our Bodies, Our Sports coalition has been traveling the country sounding the alarm on consequences of the new Title IX regulations. The new regulations strip away all sex-based protections in education, undermine women’s rights, and require schools to allow males to self-identify into women’s spaces, including athletics. 

The bus vandalism incident comes just days before the bus is due to arrive in Washington, D.C. to start its fifth and final week of events to celebrate the 52nd anniversary of Title IX and National Women’s Sports Week, which runs from Sunday, June 23 through Saturday, June 29. 

Independent Women’s Forum created National Women’s Sports Week in 2022. The week celebrates the incredible expansion of opportunities for female athletes since the passage of Title IX in 1972 and recognizes the role of Title IX in guaranteeing equal athletic opportunities for women and men. The week also honors the coaches and parents who empower female athletes. 

Sunday, June 23, marks the 52nd anniversary of Title IX. It also marks the last anniversary of the landmark sex equality law as we have always known it. The Biden administration’s Title IX rewrite is set to take effect on August 1. 

IWF confirmed the vandals’  messages on the bus — “F*ck Transphobia,” “Transphobic P*ssies,” and “Hate Group” — will be wiped clean before its next public stop.

HERE is the Google drive folder with photos and videos of the bus tour. 

“It’s disgusting but not surprising to see such a blatant anti-woman attack on a tour bus — our home on the road — that represents a national movement fighting to preserve equal opportunity, fairness, and safety for women in athletics. The Title IX rewrite from the Biden administration is in itself just that—an attack on women. We are disheartened but will continue to stand strong and share this important message across the country: women will not be replaced or sidelined. The Our Bodies, Our Sports Coalition has been working to save women’s sports since 2021, and we aren’t slowing down anytime soon. This cowardice attack will only make us stronger and louder as we continue to roll into Washington D.C. to amplify our message to the administration and Congress!” said Brianna Howard, Independent Women’s Forum coalition manager and Our Bodies Our Sports “Take Back Title IX” Bus Tour manager.

“It’s amazing that females wanting female-only sports warrants such a reaction. They’ve resorted to name-calling, defaming, and intentional misrepresentation when they can’t dissuade from our position. And now they’ve added violence and vandalism to their tactics. Common sense, logic, reason, lived experience, and science are on our side. Let’s be clear. The trans rights activists don’t want inclusion; they want the exclusion of women,” said Riley Gaines, 12x All American swimmer, 5x SEC Champion and record holder, Independent Women’s Forum ambassador, and host of “Gaines for Girls” on OutKick.

“I am looking forward to being in the nation’s capital during National Women’s Sports Week for the Our Bodies, Our Sports ‘Take Back Title IX’ Summer 2024 Bus Tour. I am heartbroken to see the photos of our bus after it was vandalized in Chapel Hill. But, we will never back down from our fight to protect women’s and girls’ sports and spaces,” said Paula Scanlan, former University of Pennsylvania swimmer and Independent Women’s Forum ambassador.

“Women’s sports give young athletes the self-esteem, focus, and teamwork needed to succeed in the world beyond athletics. Those of us who have benefitted from single-sex competition and camaraderie owe the next generation the same opportunities,” said May Mailman, director of Independent Women’s Law Center.

“As we celebrate National Women’s Sports Week, it’s crazy that we are fighting to take back the rights that were given to women in 1972 – 52 years ago. Women and girls deserve single sex sports as well as single sex locker rooms. I urge everyone to speak up and to remember what we are fighting for – the girls and women athletes of today as well as future generations!! The hate written on our bus won’t stop us – it only encourages us to keep up our fight,” said Coach Kim Russell, former Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach at Oberlin College and Independent Women’s Forum ambassador.

“After speaking at our rally in Chapel Hill on Thursday, my heart sank reading the hateful comments written on our bus by vandals. As someone living with the consequences of allowing a biological man to play in women’s sports, I know firsthand how important it is to protect women’s and girls’ sports and spaces. We must continue to sound the alarm on the Biden administration’s new Title IX regulations,” said Payton McNabb, Independent Women’s Forum ambassador and volleyball player who was severely injured by a male on a women’s team. 

“In the last couple years, I’ve been going around trying to get former coaches and athletes and athletic directors to join in with me in this fight. It just really disappoints me whenever I call a former coach and he says, ‘Well, I don’t want to get involved.’ Well, let me tell you what, if you don’t get involved, then there’s going to be a lot of young little girls that aren’t going to have the opportunities that you have. So, I want to challenge you to get involved more,” said Coach Sylvia Hatchell, former UNC-Chapel Hill Basketball Coach, fifth most career wins in NCAA history, former USA Basketball Team Assistant and Head Coach.

BACKGROUND:

OUR BODIES, OUR SPORTS COALITION

The “Take Back Title IX” Bus Tour builds on the momentum the Our Bodies, Our Sports coalition has built over the past two years standing up for women and girls — creating the largest, most ideologically diverse women’s movement of our time. 

The Our Bodies, Our Sports coalition formed in 2022 to defend women’s sports and the integrity of the female sporting category.Despite political and ideological differences, members of the coalition stand together with gratitude for the generations of female athletes who came before us and in defense of all the women and girls who will come next. 

Coalition members include Independent Women’s Forum (IWF), Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), Champion Women, Women’s Sports Policy Working Group, International Consortium on Female Sports (ICFS), Independent Council on Women’s Sports (ICONS), the US chapter of Women’s Declaration International (WDI USA), Concerned Women for America (CWA), Young Women for America, Independent Women’s Voice (IWV), Independent Women’s Law Center (IWLC), and Independent Women’s Network (IWN). 

Our Bodies, Our Sports believes that taking opportunities from women and giving them to men doesn’t enforce Title IX, it violates it. That was true before the Biden administration dropped its new Title IX rule, and it is still true today.

NATIONAL WOMEN’S SPORTS WEEK

In 2022, Independent Women’s Forum, together with its grassroots membership arm Independent Women’s Network, registered an official National Women’s Sports Week observed annually during the week of June 23 to recognize female athletes — past, present, and future — for their athletic participation and achievement in sport.

National Women’s Sports Week coincides with the anniversary of Title IX, which transformed sports by guaranteeing women and girls the right to equal athletic opportunity.

Juneteenth bus tour teaches Central Floridians about local Black history

The Juneteenth Central Florida Black History Tour at the Eatonville Chamber of Commerce.

The bus tour took place the weekend of June 15, and visited several Central Florida historical sites including Ocoee and Eatonville. 

About forty people took a bus tour of important Black history sites around Central Florida this weekend ahead of Juneteenth. June 19th, 1865, marks the day when the last enslaved people in the U.S. learned they were free.

A Juneteenth bus tour takes off in Central Florida

The goal of the Juneteenth Central Florida Black History Bus Tour was simple: to highlight important history Floridians may not learn about in school.

The Juneteenth Central Florida Black History tour bus.

That’s why 13-year-old Kaitlyn Heard joined her mom, Yolanda Powell on the tour, even though it's a Saturday during her summer vacation. To learn some history.

“I've always been like a history buff, a history geek. So learning about my own state, which I barely know anything about. It was an eye-opener for me. It was a game-changer,” Heard said.

Kaitlyn’s entering eighth grade at Southwest Middle School in Palm Bay. She said she hasn’t learned a lot about Black history outside the big national names.

“We just learned about the basic Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, stuff that happened years and years and years ago. Never this. Never anything in Florida,” Heard said.

I caught up with the mother and daughter at the Eatonville Chamber of Commerce stop of the tour. The township is the oldest Black incorporated municipality in the US.

The tour group had already visited Ocoee, the site of the 1920 massacre of Black residents , and Washington Shores, one of the first Black communities in Orlando.

Under Florida state statutes, schools are required to teach Black history. What people have had concerns about is to what degree.

Last month, the Florida State Board of Education reapproved Black History standards that teach kids that, “slaves developed skills which, in some instances, could be applied for their personal benefit."

AP African American History is still banned in the state, and the Stop Woke Act, limits how teachers can talk about race and gender in K-12 classrooms.

From left to right, Yolanda Powelll, Charlotte Kendall, and Kaitlyn Heard all participated in the bus tour.

Experts like Rollins College ’s Dr. Eric Smaw said that’s why bus tours like this one, and classes like the ones he’s taught at Agape Church in Orlando are crucial. Both are ways to fill in the education gaps, when it comes to Black history.

“So on the one hand, it's good because you have community engagement from scholars where you wouldn't otherwise have it,” Smaw said.

But Smaw said this history should be taught in Florida classrooms in its fullness. He said a one-day tour, or one-day class or workshop can’t take the place of a full-semester class, taught by a certified history teacher or college professor.

“I enjoy what people are doing. I participated myself, I think it's excellent that they've stepped up. But I also think it's a shame that where the experts are in the classrooms, the knowledge can't be delivered to students there,” Smaw said.

Over the last year, Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Department of Education have said that Black history is still being taught in Florida.

Floridians grapple with their state’s education policies

Back on the tour Robert and Anna Beck who moved to Florida from Illinois, said they can’t imagine their children or grandchildren not learning Black history. Robert’s almost speechless thinking about it.

Husband and wife, Robert and Anna Beck on the Black History bus tour.

“That’s America. That’s us. What can we not know about that? Our fellow Americans, black, purple, yellow, white, we have to know about all of us. Of course, we should know about each other. I don't want my children and grandchildren not to know as much as they can,” Beck said.

Anna said although they love living in Florida, she’s been disappointed to see what’s been happening when it comes to teaching Black history in the state.

“We should be progressing. Not regressing which is what seems to be happening here in Florida. I love the state. I love the beauty. I love Florida. I'm so glad we moved here, but that piece needs some work,” Beck said.

Fellow tour participant, Charlotte Kendall agreed.

“It's just so important to me to know history. And my dream is that someday it won't be Black history. It'll just be history of all of us,” Kendall said.

The Eatonville bus stop at the Eatonville Chamber of Commerce. Participants were encouraged to take literature about the town and upcoming events.

Where do we go from here?

For mom Yolanda Powell she said she hopes there are more Central Florida Black history tours, in the coming months and years, to make sure families can learn this history.

“It has literally opened up my eyes. And I've learned so much. And I hope to do it again next year. I hope she has us again next year,” Powell said.

Patricia Bebe who is with the nonprofit Paving Pathways Florida , dedicated to the advancement of underserved families in Florida, and LaVonda Wilder, Director of the Eatonville Chamber of Commerce, helped coordinate the tour.

Patricia Bebe is the director of the nonprofit <a  href="https://www.pavingpathwaysfl.com/">Paving Pathways Florida</a>, which helped coordinate the tour.

Bebe said there will be more bus tours. But the tours are only a first step in uplifting Black and brown narratives and histories in the state.

“So all history: Black, white, Hispanic, indigenous is American history. But we know oftentimes in the U.S. we have challenges with elevating brown and Black populations or BIPOC populations. And so I want to use this work to elevate those contributions,” Bebe said.

Wilder added that through daily and weekly events at the center like this tour, she’s focused on making sure that the history of places like Eatonville are front and center throughout the year.

Eatonville Chamber of Commerce Director LaVonda Wilder welcomes the tour to her town.

She’s hopeful that the state’s first Black History Museum might still come to her town, bringing tourists from around the country and world to learn about Florida’s Black history.

The Florida Museum of Black History Task Force still needs to consider the final results of a land study that will determine among other things, which site is most conducive to a museum.

“Because if we don't talk about history, what happens? It dies. We're so caught up on these phones holding these phones in our hands. We don't research anything, we don't read anymore. If we don't tell our story, who tells our story?” Wilder asked.
