Women’s Learning Partnership is hosting a film screening and panel discussion for their new documentary, Equality: It’s All in the Family. The film reveals the ways in which discriminatory family laws—such as those that permit child marriage, favor men in divorce proceedings, or place restrictions on reproductive rights—can perpetuate gender inequality in all parts of the world.  Following the screening, expert panelists will share their experiences working towards reform.
