FILM: Equal Means Equal
Thursday, February 8 at 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
4667 Telegraph Rd, Ventura, California 93003
Free film screening at Ventura College.
Equal Means Equal offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today by uncovering outdated and discriminatory attitudes that influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster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. Director, Kamala Lopez, 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.
