Nike Celebrates Title IX With "Voices" [VIDEO]
Saturday marked the 40th anniversary of Title IX, the groundbreaking piece of federal legislation barring sex discrimination in education, particularly when it comes to athletic programs.
And to celebrate, Nike and Wieden + Kennedy created an ad that pays tribute to the women who have overcome locker room sexism.
Called "Voices," it features great female athletes like boxer Marlen Esparza, basketball legend Lisa Leslie, and marathoner Joan Benoit Samuelson.
The ad is a moving reminder of the obstacles that past generations faced. "When I was growing up, girls just didn't run in public," says Samuelson.
