10:00 am  Film: Legalize Equality (30 minutes) The film portrays an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today and will be followed by a discussion. Director Kamala Lopez follows both real life stories and precedent-setting legal cases to portray how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence issues, from workplace matters to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, the healthcare system and the legal system.She reveals the inadequacy of present laws in place that claim to protect women andpresents a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment. 

11:00 am   League Business Meeting:  The business meeting will review county-wide positions and priorities for 2019-2020. Members will make recommendations to be adopted at the annual meetings of the two Leagues later this year.
