We were able to purchase "Failing at Fairness" within the past couple of
years. I believe we went directly to NBC. Bib info below.
But I will also be interested in hearing whether there are any similar
programs available.

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 help.
