âThe motivation behind everything I do is showing my kids that they can accomplish anything,â said Curry. âIf it weren’t for Title IX and the women who fought for equality over the last century, it might not be. The fact that it has not been ratified is completely shocking, and with the 50th anniversary approaching next year, now is the time to educate and shine a light on those who fought and continue to fight for Women’s rights. I am grateful that I can create and share stories that are important, inspiring and crucial now more than ever.

Title IX was born out of a manifestation of a seed planted long ago that evolved over time thanks to powerful women throughout history and a few good men supporting them.
He continued, âEven after all this time, the tragic truth is that the law still has not been fully ratified today. Considering the important anniversary of the law next year and the general state of our culture and our world, this documentary series is more urgent and important than ever and this story must not only be told but shouted out. mountains. My greatest hope is that the whole world will wake up, take action and embrace the change that must occur, now and possibly even ultimately inspiring the ratification of Title IX once and for all. We couldn’t think of a better partner than Ayesha, Tiffany and the Sweet July team because from day one we have been fully aligned with the story, approach and our common goals and values ââto inspire the world. through storytelling.
