96% of all Americans believe that women already have equal rights; they don't.

EQUAL MEANS EQUAL offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. Examining both real-lifestories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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.

Following the film there will be a panel discussion moderated by Judith McDaniel, PhD, JD professor of Women and the Law at the University of Arizona. Our panel will include Representative Pamela Powers-Hannley, who attempted to bring the ERA up in the Arizona House this year, Representative Randy Friese, MD, Senator Steve Farley, Montserrat Caballero, community activist and anti-violence activist on domestic violence and sexual assault, and Chris Love, JD, Senior Associate at Kewenvoyouma Law, PLLC in Phoenix. Ms. Love’s practice focuses on a number of areas, including tribal labor and employment, government relations, corporate governance, policy development and analysis, code development, and constitution reform.
