The U.S. Department of Education (DOE) notified Concerned Women for America (CWA) on Friday that its Office of Civil Rights (OCR) had settled its complaint against New Hampshire-based Franklin Pierce University after the school agreed to rescind its policy of allowing biological men to compete against female athletes in sports competitions.

OCR agreed with CWA that the university’s transgender policy violates the federal Title IX statute, which prohibits discrimination in educational programs, including athletics, based on sex for institutions that receive federal funding.

“This resolution agreement is the first victory for college female athletes being forced to compete on an unfair playing field against males claiming transgender status and competing in women’s sports,” Penny Nance, CEO of CWA, said in a statement. “We thank the Department of Education for upholding Title IX, which was passed into law 48 years ago to give women and girls equal opportunities in sports based on biological sex.”
