Act now to ensure equal opportunity in sports! 
Currently, girls receive 1.25 million fewer opportunities to play high school sports than boys. It is difficult for advocates to promote fairness in high school athletic programs because high schools are not required to report any data of their athletics programs to the public. Urge your legislators to support the High School Athletics Accountability Act of 2009.
In July 2009, Girls Inc. Chief Operating Officer Dr. Marcia Brumit Kropf testified at a Congressional hearing held by the Subcommittee on Research and Science Education, a part of the Committee on Science and Technology. The hearing focused on examining current research findings, best practices, and the role of federal agencies in increasing the interest of girls in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) in primary and secondary school.
