Memphis Women in Film: Equal Means Equal

6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Crosstown Arts
430 N Cleveland
Memphis, TN 38104 United States

Quarterly event series. May topic: Equal Means Equal — Film Screening & Panel Discussion

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 Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault, to the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. Runtime: 93 minutes.

Networking at 6:30 p.m.; speaker presentation begins at 7:00 pm.
Complimentary food and drink.
