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.

In depth, thorough, and hard hitting documentary on the state of discrimination against women and girls
6 September 2016 | by catbettsSee all my reviews

Equal Means Equal has been described as an unflinching look at the current state of gender inequity, and it truly is unflinching. It's powerful and emotionally raw, exposing the nefarious webs of discrimination against women in an extremely well organized and pointed manner. The most poignant and hard hitting interview of the film is one of a young rape victim describing how she had to walk down her street, bloody, while people stared and no one asked her if she needed help or if she was okay. Gender based discrimination and violence are so everyday and expected, we almost expect this type of treatment for victims and survivors. This should be required viewing for students and legislators.
