      Audience Member Bad as everything Lopez directs. A great subject, a great cause, entirely dwarfed by the director's need to be celebrated. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a must see for all men and women. This movie should also be more accessible, so as to spread this information faster and open the eyes of the public. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member "I did not know that!" Basically, I found myself uttering that phrase throughout this important and very relevant documentary about women's rights and the struggles and challenges many try to overcome each day. Some scenes are shocking, others heartbreaking. Did you know that women in the United States of America still DO NOT have equal rights under the law? I just assumed they did, but they do not. Technically and legally, it's still a man's world. Until I watched this eye-opening film, I did not know that! Highly recommended. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member outstanding documentary that deals with the injustice to women Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Must see. Can download this soon by going to website for Equal Means Equal. This film tells the story of why The Equal Rights Amendment needs to be passed for women in America and the global implications of its not being passed in the US. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member I had the opportunity to see Equal Means Equal while I was visiting NYC this past weekend. This film raises critical questions about the status of women in our society. A compelling argument is presented to highlight why it is critical that women finally be recognized under the US Constitution.

      Helen T. Verongos New York Times Broader than it is deep, "Equal Means Equal" still drills down into enough specific issues to shock us afresh. Sep 1, 2016 Full Review Abby Garnett Village Voice A swiftly paced documentary about America's systemic war on women's rights ... Sep 1, 2016 Full Review Tomris Laffly Film Journal International Kamala Lopez's unfocused documentary packs too much data and talking heads into its running time, and ultimately plays like a news report rather than a movie. Aug 24, 2016 Full Review Brigid Presecky FF2 Media Eye-opening, infuriating, this doc will make you rise to action, making it an absolute must-see! Rated: 5/5 Aug 16, 2019 Full Review Sarah Rense Esquire Magazine It's need-to-know stuff for every American. It's just too damn bad this documentary is near impossible to watch. Oct 18, 2018 Full Review Alexandra MacAaron Women's Voices for Change In her ambitious film, Equal Means Equal, Kamala Lopez points out that "72% of Americans are completely invested in the false belief that the genders are explicitly equal under the U.S. Constitution."
