Statement from AWM President, Ami Radunskaya, regarding Department of Education Secretary Betsy Devos’ draft proposal overhauling existing regulations governing Title IX, the federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education:

In keeping with the mission of the AWM to support women and girls in mathematics, we are very concerned that existing protections for victims of sexual assault may be threatened by new policies. We encourage the Department of Education to enact policies that protect against sexual harassment on college campuses and all schools under their jurisdiction, and to support the recovery of survivors. We ask the Department of Education to ensure that survivors' protections and rights are not diminished. We believe that schools must be held to clear and high standards for promoting safe learning environments, should strive to make campuses free of sexual harassment in any form, and should have clear, consistent, and robust procedures for handling complaints. The AWM will continue to advocate for gender equity in all aspects of education; we cannot go backwards.
