Equal Means Equal – Film Screening

June 27, 2018 - 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

Presented by the Greater Syracuse NOW Chapter, CNY-NOW, & Syracuse Metro League of Women Voters

EQUAL MEANS EQUAL is an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. By following both real life stories and precedent setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez discovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace matters to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, the healthcare system and the legal system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws in place that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights amendment.
