Today the White House will be holding a roundtable on the 37th Anniversary of Title IX featuring Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, Education Secretary Arne Duncan and an all-star line-up of women athletes and scientists. In addition to the roundtable participants, which include Billie Jean King and Dominique Dawes, 30 local high school aged girls will be in the audience along with several professional athletes and well-known Title IX advocates.
We are once again using our "White House Live" Facebook application, which will allow you to discuss the Roundtable and watch the live-stream at the same time. The participants at the Roundtable will also be kept up to date with your questions and comments.
[UPDATE: This event has now concluded.]
If you are not a Facebook user, you can also watch it live at WhiteHouse.gov/live/discuss, and we will have a special comment form you can use to communicate with us there as well.
Over the past few days women athletes (current and former) have been submitting photos of themselves in action, which we are featuring now in this new kind of photo gallery below. You can still submit your own photo to be a part of it.
