Please join us with the East Lansing Film Festival for a special
screening and discussion of the documentary Equal
Means Equal. This film 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precedent setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez discovers how outdated and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. Panel
discussion will immediately follow the film screening.
Panel members include:
Dr. Janine Lanza
Associate Professor of History, Wayne State University
Chairperson, Ingham County Board of Commissioners
Former State Legislator
Hispanic Women in the Network
Special Exhibit: Great Girls in Michigan History
Extended to April 1, 2017
Michigan girls do great things. In this exhibit you will meet nine girls from
different eras, with different dreams, from across the state of Michigan who
all accomplished something amazing before the age of 20. It was not always easy
for these girls; most had significant obstacles to overcome to reach their
goals. Visitors will leave knowing what qualities Great Girls possess and inspired to reach their own dreams. This is
appropriate for visitors of all ages.
