Equal Means Equal 

A Film Screening and Panel Discussion
March 29, 2018 7:00 – 9:30 pm
Free and open to the public

SMU’s Women and LGBT Center and the American Association of University Women (Farmers Branch Carrollton) will host a screening of the 2016 documentary film, Equal Means Equal, directed and narrated by Kamala Lopez. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion.
Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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.

The panel will include Joanna L. Grossman JD, Professor in SMU’s Dedman School of Law, Rick Halperin PhD, Director of SMU’s Embrey Human Rights Program, and Alejandra Aguirre, a Government Affairs Consultant.
