Event description

Description

The Tipacon Charter Chapter of the American Business Women's Association is partnering with the Feminist of OU (Oakland University) student organization and the Oakland/Macomb Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) to present a movie 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 By following both real life stories and precedent setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez discovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace matters to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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.

This registration is for non-OU attendees only. Tipacon would greatly appreciate a minimum donation of $10.00 which will benefit our professional development and education funds. Snacks and beverages will be provided while supplies last.

The event is free for all Oakland University students and staff. OU students and staff should contact The Feminists of OU for registration details.
