Good Afternoon,

A faculty member is trying to locate the video segment Failing in
Fairness that aired on Dateline around 1994, I believe. I haven't had
any luck finding it available for purchase. Does anyone know other
vhs/dvd sources that address the issue of gender bias in the classroom,
especially as it relates to mathematics? Thanks in advance for your
