BOSTON (AP) - The TD Garden’s Sports Museum is spotlighting female athletes in a new exhibit.

“TEAMMATES: Voices From Title IX” celebrates the rise of women in team sports since the passage of Title IX. The 1972 law requires gender equity in every educational program that receives federal funding, including sports.

The exhibit features a wall-to-wall interactive timeline highlighting notable female sports figures, including coaches, executives and sports journalists.

It includes photos, audio and other artifacts to highlight athletes including tennis champion Billie Jean King to more recent stars like the members of the U.S. women’s national soccer team that won the World Cup in 1999 and the WNBA’s Maya Moore.

The exhibit opened Thursday at the home arena for the NBA’s Celtics and NHL’s Bruins. It’ll be on display for three years.
