Affirmative Action and Title 9

Pros and Cons

Affirmative Action


- diverse work environment

- helped the minorities move up

- may create diverse discrimination

- society can't be truly color blind until they stop making decisions based off of race

- can help the least qualified individual

- disqualifies other groups of occupational and educational oppourtuies

- make businesses weaker

Affirmative action is wrong because it is still discrimination just opposite race.

Title 9


- gave woman more chances to be in athletics

- more equal

- more female involvement

- allows for more scholarships for woman

- expands female athletics


- football and wrestling no longer in existence

- females get more funding for their sports

- more male sports being cut and more female sports being added

Title 9 is very efficient and makes female and male sports equal
