Julie Lane is the author of the article “Women Are a Problem: Title IX Narratives in the New York Times and the Washington Post, 1974–1975,” published by Sage Journals’ Communication and Sport.

The article explores media narratives used to cover the 1974-1975 debate over passage and implementation of Title IX regulations with regard to intercollegiate athletics. It concludes that narratives presented by the NCAA and other critics of the law overwhelmed those made by advocates for women’s rights, as well as arguments decrying the commercialization of college sports.
