Until 1972, sexual discrimination against women in college and university studies was legal. Women could be denied educational opportunities until 1972. Patsy Mink, Edith Green, Birch Bayh, Ted Stevens and Richard Nixon changed that. The new legislation changed women’s education options from just nurse, secretary, teacher or looking for a husband in college to different fields such as medicine, law, engineering, fields that had no want for women except in very rare cases.
Evan Weiner started his career as a sports commentator on WRKL Radio, Rockland County at the age of 15. He is among a very small number of people who cover the politics and business of sports and how that relationship affects not only sports fans but non-sports fans as well. He has a daily podcast called “The Politics of Sports Business” as well as a daily video podcast. He has been a regular on Talk Sports London and writes for The Guardian, a U.K. newspaper. He has appeared as a TV pundit on MSNBC, NewsMax, and ABC. He is the author of eight books and is a frequent college speaker. He won the 2010 Ronald Reagan Media Award from the United States Sports Academy.
