Description

The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County’s David Taub Reel Upstanders Film Series presents a film screening of the documentary Equal Means Equal. The special guest speaker will be Renaire Frierson, former Deputy Mayor of the Incorporated Village of Freeport and Former counsel, Executive Director at Nassau County Commission on Human Rights. Equal Means Equal offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault, to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.
