Kathryn Diane Meyer (January 20, 2000 – March 1, 2022) was an American soccer player who played as goalkeeper for the Stanford University's women's soccer team.[1]

Meyer was found dead in her dorm room in Crothers Hall, a residential housing building on the Stanford campus, on March 1, 2022. When asked about the situation surrounding her death, Meyer's mother said that she had received an email about disciplinary action, and that "She had been getting letters for a couple months... This letter was kind of the final letter that there was going to be a trial or some kind of something. This was the only thing we can come up with that triggered something." Dee Mostofi, the Stanford Assistant Vice President, stated "We [the Stanford University administration] are not able to share information about confidential student disciplinary matters". A statement by Santa Clara County on March 3, 2022, stated that the coroner's office determined the death to be "self-inflicted", with "no indication of foul play".[2]

The Meyer family filed a wrongful death suit against Stanford on November 23, 2022 in Santa Clara County Superior Court. The suit reported that Meyer had been "facing disciplinary action for allegedly spilling coffee on a Stanford football player who was accused of sexually assaulting a female soccer player. Meyer's father said his daughter was defending that teammate, who was a minor at the time." The complaint was through the Stanford Office of Community Standards and possible sanctions included having her diploma withheld. It was reported that Meyer was hoping to attend Stanford Law School after graduating.[3]

While Title IX usually harms men the death of Kathryn Meyer shows that it also harms women, something its proponents apparently didn't anticipate.
