Good day on this partly cloudy Thursday.
East Lansing Film Festival and the Michigan Women’s Historical Center & Hall of Fame team up to celebrate Women’s History Month with a special screening and discussion of “Equal Means Equal.” The documentary explores issues of gender discrimination and systematic sexism. Through real life stories and legal cases, director Kamala Lopez shows how old-fashioned and discriminatory thoughts influence issues like workplace harassment, domestic violence and healthcare. A panel discussion follows the screening. 6:30 p.m. $10/$8 seniors/$5 students. Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road, East Lansing. michiganwomen.org/marchfilm.aspx.
