CRYSTAL LAKE – Three local organizations are coming together Wednesday afternoon and Thursday night to host viewings of the documentary “Equal Means Equal” at McHenry County College.

The League of Women Voters of McHenry County, the Student Peace Action Network at MCC and the MCC chapter of the American Association of University Women will co-sponsor the showings of the documentary, according to a news release from the league.

The film focuses on how woman are treated in the U.S. today, and it urges ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, which states the rights guaranteed to American citizens apply equally, regardless of sex.

The free event will take place at 2 p.m. Wednesday at MCC in the Scot Room (B178) and at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Room B166-167.
