Two Sisters And Title IX

Dick sits down with two sisters, Ann Meyers Drysdale and Patty Meyers, who were both athletes. One sister played at a time when women's sports were not supported by schools in any consistent way. Forty years ago, when Title IX was passed, things began to change enough to make a difference for Ann Meyers Drysdale to get one of the first scholarships for a woman to play basketball in college. See photos of the sisters here.
