Please join us for a Sisterhood Women’s History Month film screening and talk that addresses issues most important to women today. Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and a panel of experts focused women’s challenges will reflect on the documentary EQUAL MEANS EQUAL.
Teenagers are encouraged to attend with their parents, but please note the film contains mature content.
