37 Words tells the full story of Title IX — the hard-fought battle to push for equal rights in education and athletics, the decades-spanning effort to nullify its impact and the rippling impacts of the landmark civil rights law that continue to resonate today. Helmed by acclaimed directors Dawn Porter and Nicole Newnham, the four-part series charts the spectacular transformation that 37 words have inspired in American culture and the lives of women, as well as the many ways in which the spirit of this bold law has yet to be fully realized.
