MT governor signs bill to protect women’s sports

Published On: 5/7/2021

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Christiana Holcomb regarding Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte’s signing Friday of the Save Women’s Sports Act, a bill sponsored by Rep. John Fuller that protects opportunities for women and girls in athletics by ensuring they are not forced to compete against men playing on women’s sports teams. Montana joins Idaho, Mississippi, Arkansas, and West Virginia in protecting K-12 and collegiate sports for women and girls:

“Allowing males to compete in girls’ sports destroys fair competition and women’s athletic opportunities. Gov. Gianforte and the Montana Legislature have acted to preserve a level playing field for all female athletes in the state, whether in high school or college. This bill protects athletic opportunities for women and girls and gives them vital legal recourse against unfair policies that arise. In the face of ongoing pressure from woke corporations and special interests to reject this type of legislation, we are especially grateful to Gov. Gianforte, Rep. Fuller, and the Montana Legislature for taking a courageous stand and ensuring fairness for women and girls as they continue to pursue their dreams.”
