#SaveWomensSports Bill Hearing on Monday, March 13th!

March 10, 2023
Topic: Legislature

On Monday, March 13th, the Save Women’s Sports in College bill, (SB 15 by Senator Mayes Middleton), will be heard in Senate State Affairs Committee in the Senate Chamber.  Women deserve to compete on a level playing field in college, and allowing males to compete in women’s sports destroys fair competition and takes away athletic opportunities from women – including scholarships. When you ignore biology, women get hurt.

The Texas Senate State Affairs Committee will hear the Save Women’s Sports bill, SB 15 by Middleton, MONDAY, March 13th in the Senate Chamber.

Women’s sports laws should apply to every female athlete from grade school to college. Failing to include protections for collegiate athletes undermines the entire purpose of women’s sports laws. As you can see, Texas still has work to do! Check out our new microsite at
