But the DOJ complaint points to a larger problem with OCR than just its handling of mass complaints, said Nancy Hogshead-Makar, senior director of advocacy at the Women’s Sports Foundation. She compared OCR’s procedures to those of the agencies that regulate occupational health and environmental protection.
"If you see dumping going on, you shouldn’t need to be the one who gets sick in order to be able to get the EPA to respond, right?” she said. “You’re making mass complaints impossible…. You’re asking an 18- to 22-year-old to be responsible for suing their school to bring about Title IX compliance. When you think about achieving the true promise of Title IX, which is real gender equity that everybody can see and appreciate, their current strategy is ineffective.”
