In honor of International Human Rights Day, the Metro NY Chapter of the US National Committee for UN Women invites you to a special FREE film screening at Columbia University. This powerful documentary 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’s EQUAL MEANS EQUAL is a groundbreaking exploration of gender inequality in the USA featuring top women’s rights activists and leaders. A brutal expose of a broken system, the film reignites the dialogue on full equality for all Americans.
