Equal Means Equal film screening
February 12, 2017 @ 4:00 pm EST
EQUAL MEANS EQUAL 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 Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.

We’ve got your favorite cocktails and mocktails, plus a great variety of vegan beers, wine, and spirits…..many of which are eco-friendly (i.e. distilled in solar and wind-powered distilleries). We also have buchi, locally crafted Kombucha tea, and Unity Vibration Kombucha beer on tap. Ask nightly about drink specials!
