Princesses of the Gridiron:
Girls in Tackle Football

When Title IX was passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law in 1972, it opened the door for greater female participation in high school and college athletics. It also made it possible for girls to do what they really weren't able to do before Title IX: play, or at least try out for, school tackle football teams.

This website is devoted to celebrating the increasing number of girls who dare to take to the gridiron.

  • I just received a collage of pictures of a young girl who played football last fall. Click here to look at the pictures. I need to edit them in the new future.
