Summary
This two-part ABC News program examines the workplace that emerged in the '90s - a workplace influenced by sexual discrimination law suits and the ensuing legislation that defines sexual harassment not only in quid pro quo terms , but also as fostering a "hostile environment." In the first segment, professional women discuss the discrimination they have encountered as doctors and lawyers and their legal struggles to overcome the "boys' club" mentality pervasive in many professions. In the second segment, issues of environment and appropriate behavior guidelines are discussed. Of particular interest is the military - a traditional bastion for men that is seeking to develop new rules that allow both men and women to work side-by-side, with stringent guidelines as to permissible interactions in the workplace.

Summary
The 2009 installment in Wide Angle's Time for School series reenters the lives of seven students in seven different countries, offering a glimpse of the worldwide battle to get what most American children take for granted: a basic education. These riveting case studies in India, Afghanistan, Kenya, Benin, Brazil, Japan, and Romania feature young teenagers embracing academic challenges that will, with luck and hard work, prepare them for high school. Other hurdles, from school closings to slum crackdowns to violent fundamentalism, continue to disrupt hopes and dreams-forcing one child to repeat a grade, another to study on an empty stomach, and another to quit her education altogether. But a conversation with Benin-born musician and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Angelique Kidjo provides a ray of optimism.
