“EqualMeans Equal” http://equalmeansequal.com/ 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 Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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.
"Equal Rights Amendment - Unfinished Business for the Constitution" is a 17-minute educational documentary about the Equal Rights Amendment that is available from the Alice Paul Institute via the website http://www.equalrightsamendment.org. The film was produced in 1998 and premiered in Seneca Falls, NY for the 150th anniversary of the first Woman’s Rights Convention and the 75th anniversary of the ERA’s introduction by Alice Paul in 1923. This film makes a convincing case that there is no cost to the economy of women catching up to men. Workers generally have failed to see gains from a growing economy; there’s plenty of room to increase bargaining power of workers generally, reducing the gender gap and increasing wages.
