OSU Marching Band Culture and Title IX


News of the sexualized culture of OSU's marching band has shocked the public, and led to the recent termination of the band's director. This hour we'll look more closely into alleged violations of Title IX, the 1972 amendment prohibiting sex discrimination in educational settings. We'll also discuss the pervasiveness and dangers of hazing.
