Film-screening of "Equal Means Equal," an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. Q&A audience discussion following film with Kyra Kelly from Ophelia’s Place. This film examines both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases. Director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from work place harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment. This film was the winner of Best U.S. Documentary, Audience Award at Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival.
