Description

Throughout 2011, the WLP worked with a fifth-grade basketball player, Charlotte Murphy, who attends an elementary school within the Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) system. Her basketball team was eliminated during 2010, but the boys' team was not. The young activist wrote to Superintendent Linda Lane, told her the school was in violation of "title nine," and demanded a meeting.
