Julie Manning grew up in a forward thinking community in Granger, Iowa, in the 1960s and 1970s.
"My whole world was men's sports," Barry said.
"It was not all positive," she said. "I was a quote, unquote Tom Boy, and that was not a positive label, Ceal the Tom Boy. That was not a positive label when you're 12."

At that time in the late 1960s, public schools in her hometown did not have sports teams for girls. If a girl wanted to compete athletically, she had to wait for summer softball or attend one of the nine all girl Catholic schools in town that did provide athletic opportunities for girls in sports such as field hockey, basketball and track and field.
The one place where Barry could turn to find examples of other girls succeeding in sports was the pages of her older sisters' yearbooks from Assumption High School, one of those nine Catholic schools.

Barry said that Title IX has helped girls and women make major progress in high school and college sports by requiring equal access and treatment in areas such as facilities, travel, recruiting and coaching. But she says there is plenty of room for improvement at CU and across the nation in "more ambiguous, less measurable areas" such as external operations of athletic departments like marketing, promoting, attendance, development, donors and fundraising.
But Ceal the Tom Boy went on to become a field hockey and basketball player at the University of Kentucky. She didn't receive any financial aid in college until her senior year when Title IX law was finally being enforced in the mid 1970s.
Barry has made the case numerous times in lectures on campus over the past 20 years that the media plays as big a role as any other segment of society in the success or failure of women's sports. The media is not bound by Title IX, which Barry believes is a problem, even a shackle at times for women's sports.

Barry marvels at the sheer number of role models girls and young women have to look up to today in the sports world compared to those nights laying on her bed in her childhood home in Louisville, Ky.
Three of those female leaders at CU grew up in Mid America in a pre Title IX world in the 1960s and early 70s and didn't reap the benefits of the law as athletes the way they have as coaches and administrators.
The gender ratios have changed dramatically in the intervening years with six women filling senior level administrative jobs under athletic director Mike Bohn. Some of the credit for that change goes to Bohn, a man raised by a strong mother who has spent her life as a steward for athletic programs for Boulder's girls and boys. Some credit belongs to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 which required schools and colleges receiving federal money to provide the same opportunities for girls as they did for boys.
There were no female athletes as prominent as Serena Williams, Danica Patrick and Abby Wambach are today. Barry grew up watching the New York Yankees or Bart Starr playing quarterback for the Green Bay Packers on a black and white television. She spent dozens of winter days and nights listening to University if Louisville men's basketball games on the radio when Wes Unseld and Butch Beard led the team.
"My role models were anonymous girls in the yearbooks who had captions underneath the black and white photos," Barry said. "There they were playing basketball in photos in the yearbooks. . Those were my role models. To this day, I've never met them, but they were girls playing organized sports."
Barry said despite the encouragement from her parents, it was still a time of conflict for her.
"Look at the front page of the sports page for seven days and see how many articles are about girls or women," she said. "High schools is most equitable. College is second. Pros, whether it be LPGA or WNBA or women's soccer that just folded, you ain't going to find that. . I think the general public responds to what the media deems newsworthy."
Ceal Barry, Julie Manning and Kris Livingston learned from pioneering female athletic administrators such as Elaine Hieber and Pam Wettig. They know from their personal and professional success that Title IX helped level the playing field for girls and women in some ways, but they are also in positions to know how it continues to fall short.
and courts of play than they did in many other parts of the country, but it was nothing compared to the year round competition schedules some girls keep nowadays.
Manning helped paved way for female athletes
When her college career ended and her athletic opportunities dried up, Barry kept her competitive spirit fueled through coaching. She won 510 games coaching Division I women's teams at Cincinnati and CU and she remains the winningest coach in any sport at Colorado with 427 career victories. She retired from coaching in 2005 and a month later accepted an administrative job in the athletic department.
When key decisions were made in the Colorado athletic department just a decade ago, there was generally only one woman with a seat at the table and a voice in the discussion.
Barry also had strong advocates for her athletic pursuits in her parents. In an age when girls were expected to set the table for dinner and help Fendi Peekaboo Snakeskin

She oversees men's and women's basketball as well as women's soccer, volleyball and golf.

And some of the credit obviously is due to the women who have worked hard in a male dominated segment of society for decades to earn their spot at the table.
