Once again, a girl of substance volunteered to reopen a pressed down, dusty case file, so to unthaw the residual pain from the past. Emma is bereft on the vaunting tilt of the pay pendulum towards the men, dampening the zeal of women.
Suiting herself, she drew attention to the bitter pill of raw deals Hollywood divas swallowed day in night out. Emma rustled up a debate, steering the ethos of Hollywood pay culture in a courtroom.
She cited that she is yet to suffer prejudice of the pay fiasco and reel under a financial crunch obtruded by heavier pay cheques awarded to men. The actress discerned that success and popularity make the mayor go around: the merchants of Hollywood dream put extra zeroes on a pay cheque or erase off a few depending upon the standing and popularity of a star, and those are the decisions unrelated to one’s gender.
Lucky her, she is free from gripes of slim pay meted out to women in comparison to larger pies men take home, and can discern the larger picture from a vantage point. How many can boost of that, as Hollywood’s overall record in this regard is enveloped in a dubious shade.
He and she is a one pole that is poles apart. Men lack the ethereal feminine grace, patience, the ability to bear children, whereas they have that protective embrace, resolute willpower and masculine attractiveness, which women do not have. Things work well in tandem, at emotional, physical and mental levels. Absorb the implied sans qualification, without draping clothes of foolish reasoning and conning the basic set-up of nature. After all, things work in tandem, he and she was meant to be him and her, not a he and a she. So, why the pay prejudice, we must ask why?
