Hollywood Paychecks

I’m all for gender equality and feminism and all that sweet stuff as most people know, but I heard something recently a bit controversial which seemed just as feminist as the cause to get women paid the same as men in Hollywood and it was:

“Here’s the problem. I run a business. People want to work for less money, I pay them less money. I don’t call them up and go, ‘Can I give you some more?’ The truth is that what women have to do is not work for less money, they have to walk away. People shouldn’t be so grateful for jobs. People should know what they’re worth and say no.”
