Of course.

In entertainment things are different, it should be on the basis of how much of an audience someone draws. Female tennis players managed to get away with being paid the same as men even though fewer people are actually interested in them. They managed to do this by being on the same tour as the men and insisting that they have to get the same prize money from whoever sponsors the event. If they were on a separate tour though they would have to fund the prize money purely on their own game and would get less for sure.

Yes, they may deserve it but the reality of the situation is they won't.

Women will be paid slightly less than men regardless.

Edit: I just finished watching that video and that reporter was dense and they shouldn't have had her doing the interview because she couldn't be objective about it. She was too emotional and taking it personal because she was offended by his comments which is unprofessional

I actually feel sorry for the guy having to answer questions from a woman who thinks she can just walk into a job after having kids and get paid more because 'she learnt extra skills at home'

lol Il Duce, I think I posted that in the funny picture thread

also just re-reading that, the whole ruling a nation/army thing is way off base.

There was Joan of Arcadia and one of the Queens...Queen Elizabeth I believe

Oh this concept makes me quite infuriated. I am still many steps away from being a feminist, but still. Women are not asking for more--just the same.

I think anyone who thinks that they should not get the paid equal is a sad, pathetic man who got rejected a few too many times. Honestly, if you do not think women are just as capable of men you clearly just have no spent enough time around women, and you only have yourself to blame if women do not want to spend time around you.

Ugh.
