Dr. Myra Pollack
Sadker (1943-1995) pioneered much of the research documenting
gender bias in America's schools. From grade school through graduate
school, from inner city to rural towns, she uncovered not only blatant
gender discrimination in textbooks and sports funding, but also
subtle patterns of inequities that shaped the lives of girls and
boys. This foundation continues her work.
