Western Wyoming Community College’s History Program and Sweetwater BOCES will host a free film screening of the documentary “Equal Means Equal” this Thursday, Oct. 20, at 6:30 p.m. in Room 1302. The film examines both real-life stories and precedent-setting cases that reflect how women are treated in the United States today.
Directed by Kamala Lopez, “Equal Means Equal” uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and seemingly influence disparate issues concerning women, everything from workplace harassment and domestic violence to the foster care system, healthcare, the judicial system, and rape and sexual assault. The film exposes the inadequacies of laws presumably intended to protect women and makes a case for passage of the Equal Rights Amendment.
Western’s History Program is pleased to join Sweetwater BOCES and hosts Diana Wiig and Kay Grice in presenting this thought-provoking documentary, “Equal Means Equal,” Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. This program is free and open to the public.
