The rollback of the previous guidance has left college campuses uncertain about the future of Title IX. I hope to disrupt the discourse by using feminist critical analysis of Title IX reform and provide a reframed course of discussion for higher education professionals. The fact that gender-based policies continue to be governed by lawmakers keeps the personal political. I begin with an overview of feminist critical policy analysis and explain why I chose to use it to analyze Title IX guidance. Next, with the intent to expose sexism and other forms of oppression, I use critical feminist thought to (a) examine rape; (b) provide a brief overview of the implementation and responses to the 2011 DCL; and (c) examine the five significant changes in the interim Title IX guide. Finally, I provide discussion points to facilitate future discourse for practice in the implementation of Title IX.
