Clarke (above) has opened up about the hard­ships she has been deal­ing with for be­ing a woman in the male-dom­i­nated film and TV in­dus­try and com­pared it to racism.

“I feel so naive for say­ing it, but it’s like deal­ing with racism. You’re aware of it, but one day, you go, ‘Oh, my God, it’s ev­ery­where!’ It took me a re­ally long time to see that I do get treated dif­fer­ently. But I look around, and that’s my daily life,” Clarke said in an in­ter­view to Rolling Stone mag­a­zine.

How­ever, be­ing treated dif­fer­ently doesn’t stop Clarke from be­ing a fem­i­nist. “Yes, I’ve got mascara on, and I also have a high IQ, so those two things can be one and the same.”
