The Women’s Issues Committee will show the hard-hitting documentary film, “Equal Means Equal,’’ created by filmmaker Kamala Lopez, on the subject of America’s systemic war on women’s rights. The film features interviews with well-known feminists such as Patricia Arquette and Gloria Steinem along with stories of ordinary women across the country impacted by discrimination and legislation ignored. It makes a solid case for the Equal Rights Amendment, which was approved by Congress in the 1970s, but fell three states short of ratification.
