The next conversation about gender in college and high school sports in Wisconsin will be around co-ed sports.
Republican state Rep. Barb Dittrich last week introduced what she’s calling Protecting Women in Sports Act. Dittrich says the idea is to declare girls’ sports for girls, and boys’ sports for boys. Her plan includes a new co-ed sports category that allows anyone, including transgender athletes, to compete. Dittrich says the idea is not to exclude anyone, but rather to allow girls and women to enjoy the athletic success they have worked so hard for.
