“This film is designed to arrive at this moment. I’ve been reverse engineering this all along,” Lopez told MSNBC on Tuesday. “It is absolutely critical that women of all stripes, and of all parties, and of all ages are aware that their civil rights are, have been, and will continue to be violated on a very basic, profound level until they call representatives to account on the issue and do not permit a single local, state, federal, PTA appointee or elected person that doesn’t stand up and say ‘I believe in equality for all American citizens’ period, end of story.”

They wouldn’t be wealthy, but they wouldn’t be in poverty.”
