Salma Hayek calls for male stars to take pay cuts for equality

Salma Hayek

Actress Salma Hayek said that male actors should take a pay cut to serve as reparations for the unfair treatment and payment of women in Hollywood. "It's a very exciting time for men now", she said.

In a discussion with the Radio Times, Cumberbatch called on male actors to step up to the plate and refuse to take more money than what their female counterparts were being paid, even going as far as to reject work outright.

While he was producing the 2002 film "Frida", in which Hayek starred, Weinstein insisted that she add an unscripted sex scene with another woman, complete with full-frontal nudity. It is a well-known fact that if you are a woman of colour, people believe you less.

The actress said she was "shocked" to discover how much of the producer's alleged impropriety had been hushed up.

More people sickened by egg recall
The last one was in 1990 , 28 years ago, that sickened 450 people - and that's two more salmonella outbreaks than your average egg producer has had.

Equal pay isn't just about paying women more, according to Salma Hayek; it may be about men getting paid less.

The unusual thing about Weinstein's denial, Hayek noted, was not that he refuted the claims, but that he or his team said anything about them at all - most of Weinstein's sexual abuse accusers have not been directly addressed by the producer.

Reflecting on her many years advocating for women and Latinos, and the transformative potential of Me Too, Hayek pointed to the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting as a sign of how the fight for gender equality could effect broader social change.

Hayek said Weinstein's direct responses were only to herself, and the accusations lodged against him by Nyong'o. Two women of colour.

"So he went back, attacking the two women of colour, in [the] hopes that if he could discredit us, which would be easier for the audience [and] the readers to not believe us, then maybe he could discredit the rest".

Weinstein also responded by name to Ashley Judd, in an interview with the New York Post in early October. In subsequent months, his team also disputed Rose McGowan's rape allegation and released a series of photos of Weinstein with accuser Uma Thurman meant to "demonstrate the strong relationship Mr. Weinstein and Ms. Thurman had had over the years".

"Time's up. You had a good run but it is time now to be generous with the actresses", she said.

"Women are not a minority in the world, yet the current state of our industry says otherwise [.] We stand together on these steps today as a symbol of our determination and progress".
