Women’s   Equality   Day   Event,   Chicago   Premiere   of   EQUAL   MEANS   EQUAL 
 
 
(CHICAGO,   August   21,   2016)   –    “Celebrate”   Women’s   Equality   Day   with   the   Chicago 
premiere   of    Equal   Means   Equal    at   the   Logan   Theatre   on   Friday,   August   26,   2016   at   6 
p.m.   The   screening   will   be   followed   by   a   rousing   panel   discussion   with   local   lawyers 
whose   clients'   experience   first­hand   how   laws   exclude   or   harm   women,   presented   by 
the   Gender   Equity   Fund,   the   local   fundraising   arm   of   the   American   Association   of 
University   Women   (AAUW­IL,   Inc.). 
 
Equal   Means   Equal    is   an   unflinching   look   at   how   women   are   treated   in   the   United 
States   today.   By   following   both   real   life   stories   and   precedent   setting   legal   cases, 
director    Kamala   Lopez    discovers   how   outdated   and   discriminatory   attitudes   inform   and 
influence   seemingly   disparate   issues,   from   workplace   matters   to   domestic   violence, 
rape   and   sexual   assault   to   the   foster   care   system,   the   healthcare   system   and   the   legal 
system.   Along   the   way,   she   reveals   the   inadequacy   of   present   laws   in   place   that   claim 
to   protect   women,   ultimately   presenting   a   compelling   and   persuasive   argument   for   the 
urgency   of   ratifying   the   Equal   Rights   Amendment   (ERA).   
 
Equal   Means   Equal    is   a   groundbreaking   exploration   of   gender   inequality   in   the   USA 
featuring   activists,   leaders   and   survivors.   A   brutal   expose   of   a   broken   system,   the   film 
reignites   the   dialogue   on   full   legal   equality   for   all   Americans,   regardless   of   gender.    The 
Documentary   features    Patricia   Arquette,   Gloria   Steinem,   Lakshmi   Puri,   Eleanor 
Smeal,   Terry   O'Neill,   Kamala   Lopez ,      Representative    Carolyn   Maloney    and   Senator 
Robert   Menendez .      Winner   of   the   Audience   Award   for   Best   U.S.   Documentary   at 
Michael   Moore’s   Traverse   City   Film   Festival. 
 
The   movie   screening   will   be   followed   by   a   panel   including:  
 
Kara   N.   Ingelhart,   Skadden   Fellow   Attorney   (Lambda   Legal)   
Sister   Bernadine   Karge,   OP,   JD   (“Nuns   on   the   Bus”) 
Neha   Lall,   Senior   Attorney,   Legal   Assistance   Foundation   (LAF) 
 
The   panelists   will   discuss   how   their   clients   are   impacted   in   evictions,   immigration   and 
employment,   as   well   as   how   the   ERA   may   help.   
 
 
“ We   are   joining   women   in   cities   across   the   country,   on   this   Women’s   Equality   Day   to 
ask:   Why   do   we   celebrate   a   Women's   Equality   Day   in   the   United   States   when   women 
still   do   not   have   Equal   Rights?!”   says   Ruth   Holst,   president   of    AAUW­Chicago   Branch, 
Inc.,   one   of   the   donors   behind   the   Chicago   screenings. 
 
“Three   States   More”   is   a   strategy   to   revive   the   ERA   ratification   process,   and   HJRes51   is 
currently   co­sponsored   by   every   Illinois   Democrat   but   one,   as   well   as   Senator   Mark 
Kirk.      Illinois   has   not   yet   ratified   the   ERA.       SJRCA0024    is   the   Illinois   resolution   to 
correct   that,   and   was   introduced   by   Illinois   state   senator   Heather   Steans.      A   similar 
resolution,   introduced   by   state   representative   Lou   Lang,   was   passed   in   the   Senate   in 
2014.      However,   when   a   headcount   showed   the   resolution   was   just   shy   of   the   required 
3/5s   majority,   it   was   not   called   to   a   vote   in   the   House. 
 
The   movie   screening   and   panel   discussion   will   take   place   from   6   to   9   p.m.   at   the   Logan 
Theatre,   2646   N   Milwaukee   Ave.,   Chicago,   IL   60647.   Advanced   registration   with   a 
donation   of   $10   is   strongly   encouraged.      Register   at    www.emechicago.eventbrite.com 
 
Ticket   proceeds   will   benefit   the   Gender   Equity   Fund,   Lambda   Legal,   and   Legal 
Assistance   Foundation   (LAF).   Event   sponsors   include   the   AAUW­Chicago   Branch,   Inc., 
Women’s   Bar   Association   of   Illinois   (WBAI),   Lynn   Grayson,   Ruth   Holst,   Sharon 
Eiseman,   Working   Women’s   History   Project   (WWHP),   ERA   Action   &   Anonymous.      For
