‘Equal Means Equal’ Trailer Tries to Crash Through the ‘Brick Wall’ of American Gender Discrimination – Watch

22 August 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“The laws that I thought were going to protect me, didn’t.”

Kamala Lopez’s searing documentary “Equal Means Equal” aims to examine how women are treated in the United States today, zeroing in on all manner of issues related to gender discrimination, from workplace harassment to the wage gap, domestic violence to sexual assault.

The film uses both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases to “uncover how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues and…reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately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.”

12 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

With its roster of hipster-gonzo correspondents parachuting into perilous spots around the globe, Vice often can feel like a dudes-only affair. Woman, with Gloria Steinem, seeks to correct that. The half-hour Viceland series, hosted by the legendary feminist activist, features female journalists spotlighting women in equally dire situations. This is not light stuff: The first season tackled the use of rape as a weapon in the Democratic Republic of Congo; the forcible marrying of teen girls in Zambia; and, in a stark reminder that these issues exist in our own backyards, the startlingly high murder and disappearance

8 of TV's Most Inspirational Female Friendships

28 April 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

These days, it is beautifully common to see a big band of powerful, influential women marching together and preaching feminism. There is still a weird paradigm, however, in terms of what an "aspirational female friendship" should look like. On the one hand, there is the polished, Instagram-ready friendship we see presented by stars like Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian. But however pure the friendship behind those alliances may be, they still have an undeniable brand value that makes them feel sort of manufactured. #Squadgoals definitely had its moment, but it tends to apply to long-legged, dressed-to-the-nines snapshots of girlfriends more so than Gloria Steinem giving Ruth Bader Ginsburg a high-five. No one has a monopoly on feminism, but for all the talk of this being a new heyday for women's representation in the media, it's kind of a bummer to see a commodified, watered-down version of the movement presented as pop culture's mainstream. »

‘American Psycho’ Broadway Review: Bret Easton Ellis’ Serial Killer Gets Songs and a Soul

21 April 2016 5:05 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Bret Easton Ellis practically had to resign from the human race when Simon & Schuster dropped his novel “American Psycho” in 1991. (Vintage quickly came to the rescue to publish it.) Who knew that such a scandalous book, condemned by Gloria Steinem for its depiction of women and labeled as violent porn by many others, would turn up on Broadway as a musical comedy, which opened Thursday at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre? “American Psycho,” the new musical by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Duncan Sheik, is not the novel or even the 2000 film starring Christian Bale.
