Meehan wants to introduce ‘Fair Play for Women Act’

Andy Meehan, who is challenging Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick in the Republican primary, said he is disturbed by the intrusion of biological males into girls’ athletic programs and women-only spaces that he believes threatens both women’s opportunities and their safety

Andy Meehan, who is challenging Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick in the Republican primary, said the first piece of legislation he will introduce in office will be the “Fair Play for Women Act.”

Meehan said he is disturbed by the intrusion of biological males into girls’ athletic programs and women-only spaces that he believes threatens both women’s opportunities and their safety.

Under his proposal, no college or university that receives federal funding would be allowed to grant Title IX scholarships intended for women to biological men. No primary or secondary public school that receives federal funding would be allowed to have biological men participate in girls’ athletic programs or girls’ spaces like locker rooms, showers or bathrooms.
