Equal Means Equal
National Archives Building, William G. McGowan Theater
Reserve a Seat
Through real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, the documentary film looks at how women are treated in the United States today, and presents a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment. The film argues that outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence issues such as workplace harassment, domestic violence, foster care, healthcare, the judicial system, and the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women. Following the film screening will be a discussion with Kamala Lopez, Director, Equal Means Equal, Eleanor Smeal, President and a Co-founder of the Feminist Majority Foundation; Bettina Hager, DC Director of the ERA Coalition and Fund for Women’s Equality; and Bridget Brown, Executive Director, National Association of Workforce Development Professionals. Presented in partnership with the Alice Paul Institute. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition, Amending America.
