Sex discrimination is when a person, or a group of persons, makes a decision, a judgment, or takes an action about an individual on the basis of gender stereotypes, rather than on the circumstance of the situation. Sex discrimination is prohibited by Title VII, which covers employment-related discrimination, and by Title IX, which covers sex discrimination in educational institutions which receive any federal financial assistance. This item appears on the back of the poster "Women Who Made a Difference in New Mexico." This document also contains the answer key for "Crossword Puzzle: Firsts and Founders."
