HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (WSAV) – Next year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote.

With the date coming up, the League of Women Voters of Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Area is offering a screening of the award-winning documentary “Equal Means Equal.”

The film takes a look at the challenges women face here in the U.S., including low rate employment and households without healthcare.

“In particular, the low rate of employment particular of women who are head of single-parent households.  How these households don’t have healthcare, how women are discriminated against in employment for lower wages,” said Dr. Patricia Felton-Montgomery, President of League of Women Voters of Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Area.

“Equal Means Equal” will be shown on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at the Hilton Head Library.
