A history of gender equality law through the California Legislature in the 90's
5 August 2017 | by tesshoffmanSee all my reviews

Since we all have more or less the idea of how this story eventually turns out, I just want to say that watching this was like watching "Night of the Hunter," or "The Madness of King George." The first half of these two films was so painful it took me three viewings to stop turning them off partway through. But when I finished the two movies, I was glad I had.

The first half of this is so painful to watch, I nearly told my host I was not feeling well and would have to leave. The words which come out of the opponents' mouths are hideous beyond belief.

But I stayed, and am glad I did.

Stick with it - you'll be glad you did.
