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 intense documentary that makes a nonpartisan argument for passage of the ERA
5 September 2016 | by Annie D.See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to see Equal Means Equal while I was visiting NYC this past weekend. This film raises critical questions about the status of women in our society. A compelling argument is presented to highlight why it is necessary for women and men alike to challenge the absence of female protection and recognition under the US Constitution. By addressing multiple facets of our daily lives, Kamala Lopez draws the viewer into the manner in which all things are connected. Until one area is improved, the others will remain adversely affected. Until we shed what has been the tradition of our nation and redefine our culture, we will continue to see gaps in equity. A historical review shows what few knew and understood, namely the Equal Rights Amendment was a nonpartisan issue. As audience members view this documentary, I hope they can shed their partisan lens and instead view it through a human lens. Is it really too much to ask that Equal Means Equal?
