Equal Means Equal

The new administration in Washington puts women’s rights at risk. But are those rights as strong and entrenched as one might think? This film takes a wide yet probing lens to the treatment of women in the United States including wage parity, legal protects, maternity leave, ending violence and poverty and more.  A historical perspective on the still unratified Equal Rights Amendment leads to the unsettling conclusion that present laws are inadequate. The facts and figures, the past and present, the stories of activists, ordinary women and survivors of violence raise the question: how far have women come?
