League of Women Voters of Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Area to Screen “Equal Means Equal” Documentary

Staff Report From Low Country CEO

Wednesday, October 9th, 2019

Back by popular demand, the League of Women Voters will be offering another showing of the compelling documentary “Equal Means Equal” from 4:45-6:30 p.m. Thursday, November 7 at the Hilton Head Branch Library, 11 Beach City Road, Hilton Head. This event is free of charge and open to the public. However, due to space limitations, registration is required online by November 5 at http://bit.ly/EqualRSVP.

“Equal Means Equal” offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States. Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez presents a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment. South Carolina, one of only 13 states that have not yet ratified the Equal Rights Amendment, could be the 38th state to do so and the last state needed.

“Passage of the Equal Rights Amendment is an equality guarantee for ALL people. What better year than 2020—the 100th anniversary of the League and women’s right to vote—to finally guarantee legal gender equality for women and men in the US Constitution,” said Barbara Hammes, local ERA Coordinator, League of Women Voters
