Storyline

The film does an outstanding job of laying out the many ways women are disadvantaged in the United States under the Constitution. Using facts, figures, interviews, colorful graphics, news footage and occasional humor, the audience is led through current challenges to wage parity, legal protections, maternity leave, ending violence and poverty. The argument is clear and compelling. It's provocative but avoids man-bashing as it makes the case for why men and women should be fighting to get the Equal Rights Amendment passed.

An excellent documentary on the status of women in 2016.
5 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Kamala Lopez and crew do a wonderful job on this 90 minute documentary illustrating the status of women (pay inequity, sexual harassment and domestic violence in the workplace and at home, poverty, the sex trade, and the erosion of reproductive rights to expose a system that repeatedly fails women. Over 80 people are interviewed in this award-winning documentary (2016 Traverse City Film Festival) being released September 6th, 2016.

It is fast paced and the graphics are excellent - particularly those depicting the wage disparity based on race that women in the workplace experience. Other statistics are dis-aggregated as well showing disparities based on race. A much needed addition to the arsenal we can use to succeed in adding women to the U.S. Constitution in the form of the Equal Rights Amendment, a process begun in the early 1900's and still not brought to fruition.
