As she stands in the auditorium head girls soccer coach Jaqueline Tevis-Butler speaks to several Millard West athletes about women in leadership. On Thursday, Feb. 3, Tevis-Butler discussed the anniversary of Title IX. “I think one of the things we can also do is continue to advertise and celebrate the possibilities, teamwork, sense of belonging and support you get being a part of an athletic team in high school,” Tevis-Butler said. “One thing weve been doing the last 2-3 years is visiting the middle schools more often to talk to the younger girls who are thinking of quitting their sport in general.”

Coach Jacque Tevis-Butler gives a presentation on Title IX at the Women in Sports and Leadership summit. Tevis-Butler spoke about the importance of female representation in athletics. “Representation matters because if you can see it, you can be it,” Tevis-Butler said. “When women are not equally represented in leadership positions, it sends a subtle, but extremely powerful and negative message about women.  It sends the message that men hold all power. We need more perspectives.”

Unrealistic beauty standards are a plague to today’s society. Women look around and see expectations of what to look like everywhere around them. This can lead to mental health issues and other issues. It can also cause women to try to change themselves to fit society’s image.
