We are not worthless.

“Each time a girl opens a book and reads a womanless history, she learns she is worthless.”- Dr. Myra Pollack Sadker

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. She is deceased, but the Myra Sadker Foundation now carries on her work. For more information about this admirable woman, go to: source cited:
