CELEBS FOR EQUAL­ITY

EVEN HOL­LY­WOOD STARS HAVE TO BAT­TLE THE GEN­DER PAY GAP… HERE’S WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY ON THE DI­VI­SIVE TOPIC

Cosmopolitan (Australia) - - Work -

‘Men have to de­mand that their wives, daugh­ters, moth­ers and sis­ters earn more – com­men­su­rate with their qual­i­fi­ca­tions and not their gen­der. Equal­ity will be achieved when men and women are granted equal pay and equal re­spect.’

– BEY­ONCÉ ‘I think it is right that as a woman I am paid the same as my male coun­ter­parts. I think it is right that I should be able to make de­ci­sions about my own body … I think it is right that so­cially I am af­forded the same re­spect as men.’

– EMMA WAT­SON ‘In my ca­reer, I’ve needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have par­ity with them. And that’s some­thing they do for me be­cause they feel it’s what’s right and fair.’ – EMMA STONE ‘It’s never over­re­act­ing to ask for what you want and need.’ – AMY POEHLER ‘Women de­serve bet­ter, fam­i­lies de­serve bet­ter. Don’t stop talk­ing about this un­til peo­ple of any sex or any race are treated with fair­ness and equal­ity.’ – JEN­NIFER LAWRENCE
