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 By following both real life stories and precedent setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez discovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace matters to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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

Sarah Anthony
Chairperson, Ingham County Board of Commissioners

Joan Bauer
Former State Legislator

Andrea Rodriguez
Hispanic Women in the Network
