A press release from the Student Peace Action Network at McHenry County College:
“Equal Means equal” tomorrow Thursday 6:30 p.m. MCC
Equal Means Equal, a documentary urging the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment will be presented Thursday October 19th 6:30 p.m. in B166-167, MCC.
EQUAL MEANS EQUAL offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today.
Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system.
Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.
Sponsored by SPAN: Student Peace Action Network, LWV: McHenry County League of Women Voters, and AAUW: Crystal Lake American Association of University Women.
This event is free and open to the public.
