<p>Alysia Reiner, Anna Gunn and Sarah Megan Thomas star in “Equity,” written by Boulder native Amy Fox. Reiner and Thomas produced the film.</p>

Yet while "Equity" makes clear that Bishop has built a successful career, the filmmakers also wanted to show how women struggle with being undervalued. One character hides her pregnancy for fear it will hurt her chances of getting a promotion.

The film casts women in all three lead roles and two of those actresses are also the film's co-producers. They chose Amy Fox, from Boulder, to write the screenplay. Fox says growing up in Colorado helped shape her approach to the story.

Fox and co-star and producer Alysia Reiner spoke with Colorado Matters host Nathan Heffel. Fox will take questions from audiences after screenings at Denver's Landmark Esquire theater tomorrow at 7pm, and at Boulder's Century 16 theater on Saturday at 2pm and 7:30pm.
