Title IX

Title IX, of the Education Amendments of 1972, is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex - including sexual violence - in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment and acts of sexual violence such as rape, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking are forms of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. 

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." 20 U.S.C § 1681.
