"The film “EQUAL MEANS EQUAL”, produced by Heroica Films, 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 Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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."
“Equality of rights shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” - The Equal Rights Amendment

Take action today for #AllWomen and Girls to have guaranteed #EqualRights under the U.S. Constitution!
The USA has failed to #RatifyERA and #CEDAW; women and girls are treated as chattel without guaranteed EqualRights. The body count increases daily. Enough is enough. It's time to boycott the 14 states maliciously failing to ratify the #EqualRightsAmendment: AL, AR, AZ, FL, GA, IL, LA, MO, MS, NC, OK, SC, VA, and UT. Economic sanctions + public pressure work; look at the success of the LGBTI movement and CA's current state travel ban.
Former President Jimmy Carter, a 2002 Nobel Peace Prize winner, says discrimination and violence against women and girls is the number one human rights violation in the U.S. and the world. He spoke March 6, 2015 in Minneapolis at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum sponsored by Augsburg College. His book is titled, "A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power."
Q/A moderated by Monica McWilliams, former chief commissioner of the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission.
