Pay equality

While I dislike the rhetoric of men having taken pay cuts “for her,” the actions this article discusses by some men in Hollywood is laudable. I’d say they took pay cuts in the name of equality, as I assume they would have taken the cut for any similarly qualified woman rather than, as the headline seems to imply, as a special favor for this specific woman (Emma Stone). Regardless, this is good news and I’m excited she’s talking about it. If more men behaved this way, we would achieve equal pay for equal work faster–and that benefits everybody.
