Equal Means Equal offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. Director Kamala Lopez examines both real-life stories and legal cases to show how outdated and discriminatory attitudes influence countless issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault, the foster care system, healthcare, and the judicial system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, demonstrating the urgency for ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment. Following the film, we will facilitate a discussion about these issues with the audience.
The film is being hosted by the Tucson chapter of the National Organization for Women. The National Organization for Women is the nation’s oldest and largest organization of feminist activists. NOW is a multi-issue, multi-strategy organization that takes a holistic approach to women’s rights. Our goal is to use intersectional grassroots activism to promote feminist ideals, lead societal change, eliminate discrimination, and achieve and protect the equal rights of all women and girls in all aspects of social, political, and economic life.
