Equal Means Equal House Party

February 24 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join the Heart of Illinois chapter of the National Organization for Women in a private screening of the film Equal Means Equal.

“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 By following both real life stories and precedent setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez discovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace matters to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to foster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 best women’s rights documentary ever…” Katie Furtrich, BUST Magazine, Oct. 2013
