    Event Description:
    The Sisters of St. Francis, Clinton, Iowa, present movies that matter monthly on Thursdays at 6:30pm at The Canticle, 841 Thirteenth Avenue North in Clinton. The movies are free and open to the public. The March movie is Equal Means Equal and will be shown on Thursday, March 15. 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 Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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.
