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 By following both real life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez discovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace matters to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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

The Absence of Equity In Our Society Comes to the Big Screen
I had the opportunity to see Equal Means Equal while I was visiting NYC this past weekend. This film raises critical questions about the status of women in our society. A compelling argument is presented to highlight why it is women must finally be recognized under the US Constitution. The year is 2016, why have we waited so long?
