Join the YWCA Greater Harrisburg and a coalition of local women’s organizations for a free film screening of the impactful documentary “Equal Means Equal” on July 25th at the Midtown Cinema!

Directed by Kamala Lopez, this film illuminates the gross inequalities that women face every day – from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. Calling attention to the inadequacy of our current laws, this film presents a compelling and persuasive argument for our government to ensure equality for half of its population – women. Check out the trailer!

Join the Facebook event and share with your friends – and we hope to see you on Tuesday, July 25th!

Doors will open at 6:15 PM, and the movie will begin promptly at 7:00 PM.

There will be a brief panel discussion following the film moderated by Amanda L. Arbour and featuring:

  • Carlesha Green Halkias, Executive Director of the Office of Social Equity, Shippensburg University
  • Heidi Notario, Director of Implementation & Social Change, Casa de Esperanza: National Latin@ Network
  • Tiffany Chang Lawson, Executive Director, Governor’s Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs
  • Dr. Donna Bickford, Director of the Women’s & Gender Resource Center, Dickinson College

This free movie screening is brought to you by Harrisburg Area NOW, the League of Women Voters of the Harrisburg Area, the YWCA Greater Harrisburg, American Association of University Women-Harrisburg Brach, Planned Parenthood Association and the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc Epsilon Sigma Omega Chapter.
