Happy Women’s Equality Day! We have been celebrating this week, and 96 years of women’s right to vote, with the #tribetalk topic about the difference between equality and equity. Thank you for joining the conversation! The film Equity is being released in theaters everywhere and we had a chance to follow-up with film star, Sarah Megan Thomas, this week to talk more about her thoughts on the dual meaning for women in the title of the movie.
The movie title, “Equity”
ToW: When we saw you at Bentonville Film Festival, we started to talk about the dual meaning for women in the title “Equity”. Can you expand on that?
Thomas: Equity means justice and equality, but it’s also the word you use on Wall Street in finance as a general word for stocks/buying a piece of the business. So the title refers to the subject matter of the film but also has the double entendre of what we are trying to do with this film, which is have more equality for women in film and business at large.
