A Hero for DaisyHailed by The New York Times as a “landmark film,” "inspiring" by TV Guide, and “fantastic” by Sports Illustrated, “A Hero for Daisy" is a documentary film about Title IX pioneer and two-time Olympian, Chris Ernst, who galvanized her rowing team to storm the Yale athletic director’s office in 1976 to protest the lack of athletic facilities for the women. Nineteen athletes stripped, exposing the phrase “Title IX” in blue marker (Title IX referring to legislation enacted in 1972, which mandated gender equity for all institutions receiving federal aid). The story was picked up by The New York Times and was carried by all of the major international news outlets the following day. The impact was immediate and national in scope.

The film, which has been critically acclaimed, has garnered awards, aired nationwide on ESPN, Oxygen, WGBH, WTSN (Canada), and is in thousands of classrooms across the country. TO ORDER A Hero For Daisy, click here. For more information on A Hero For Daisy, check out www.aherofordaisy.com.
