    Equal Means Equal (2014, 120 minutes, R)

    “Equal Means Equal is an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. By following both real life stories and precedent setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez discovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace matters to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, the healthcare system and the legal system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws in place that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.”

    1. If equal means equal why don’t you go break your back laying some brick? You want to be equal to men financially go do their jobs. Oh wait, God gave men different abilities than women? Yes! Men are the laborers, built for work? Women are made bear and care for their children while their husband works? That’s so sexist! Saying women can do things men can’t and men can do things women can’t is so unequal!

      • My goodness, someone is angry today.

        Some women can and do lay bricks, and there are some men that can’t swing a hammer to save their lives.

        Your generalizations miss the point, which is equal pay for equal work.
