Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik today voted to pass the  Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act.

“Our daughters should not be forced to compete against biological men in competitive sports, which is why House Republicans took a stand for fairness and to protect the future of women’s sports from being diminished by the radical gender fluidity agenda,” Stefanik said. “In the face of a woke agenda that is taking away long fought for protections for women in sports, House Republicans took action through the Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act to ensure our children have an even playing field in competitive sports, so our daughters will grow up in a generation where their hard work and dedication pays off in competition.”

Last spring, female competitors were robbed of the chance to earn an NCAA Championship in the 500 Freestyle by a biological male, Lia Thomas.

After this outrage and the spreading woke gender fluidity agenda, House Republicans took action to ensure a fair playing field for women and girls in sports. The Protection of Women and Girls in Sports Act would require schools to protect individuals from sex discrimination based on the person's reproductive biology and genetics at birth, in compliance with the original intent of Title IX for athletics. Specifically, this bill ensures biological females only compete against other biological females in women's sports sponsored by entities receiving federal education funding.
