Three House Democrats sent a letter Monday to NCAA president Mark Emmert, lambasting him for failing to take meaningful steps to ensure gender equity in college sports and suggesting his association is in violation of Title IX.

As reported by Sports Illustrated, representatives Carolyn B. Maloney (D-N.Y.), Jackie Speier (D–Calif.) and Mikie Sherrill (D–N.J.) say the NCAA has made “inadequate progress” in addressing the disparate treatment of men and women athletes a year after the topic took center stage during the NCAA women’s basketball tournament.
