    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 Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the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.

    The David Taub Reel Upstanders Film Series was established in honor of David Taub (1932-2010), a Holocaust Survivor and respected friend of the Center.

    Light refreshments will be served. Suggested donation of $10 to attend. RSVP to (516) 571-8040 or info@hmtcli.org.

    Joan Adler, executive director of the Straus Historical Society, is the author of For the Sake of the Children: The Letters Between Otto Frank and Nathan Straus Jr. In 2007, a file of letters between University of Heidelberg roommates and lifelong friends, Otto Frank and Nathan Straus Jr, was found in the archives of YIVO: Institute for Jewish Research in NYC.

The letters are being published for the first time in For the Sake of the Children.
