Equality: It's All in the Family
Film Screening Toolkit
Equality: It's All in the Family examines the root causes of laws and practices that discriminate against women, and highlights the pathways reformers are taking to create a more equitable and free society. Drawing on expertise from prominent human rights activists and leaders, this 26-minute film explores how, in many parts of the world, women are constrained by family laws that give men the power to control their right to marry or divorce, inherit property, travel without a male guardian, hold a job, choose their place of residence, or make decisions about their children’s rights. In some places, family laws based on religion or traditions go so far as to support forms of violence against women, such as wife battery, early marriage for girls, and even so-called “honor” killings. This documentary is available in Arabic, English, French, Kyrgyz, Persian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Russian.
