Today, 42% of the Michigan Marching Band identifies as a woman; this was only possible with the passing of Title IX. The 2022-23 school year marks the 50th anniversary of Title IX’s inception. The MMB celebrated this anniversary during Homecoming this past year with a performance where several pioneering women from throughout the MMB’s history conducted and participated in the performance, including Lynn Hansen, a graduate of the U-M School of Music, Theatre & Dance and marching band member from 1972 to 1975.
