Event description

Description

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 Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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.

There will be a discussion following the screening with Maya Wiley, senior vice president for Social Justice at The New School and the Henry Cohen Professor of Urban Policy and Management at The New School’s Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy. Other panelist to be announced.

This event is hosted by the New School, Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy as part of the Henry Cohen Lecture series and by Maureen A Bryan, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of THE VOICE OF A WOMAN.

Doors open at 5:30PM. Admission is free; reservations are required to attend. Please bring your receipt of your confirmation for entry.
