The ECC Film and Lecture Series will screen the film "Equal Means Equal" and host a discussion on Thursday, March 9, at 6:30 p.m. in the Health and Science Building lecture hall, room 100. The event--which will mark Women's History Month--is free and open to the public.
The documentary "Equal Means Equal," directed by Kamala Lopez, examines issues surrounding the state of women's rights in America. Using both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, Lopez looks into workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. The film presents the argument that the Equal Rights Amendment should be ratified.
