    THe hell century these women live in? Equal pay has been law since 1963. Which rights exactly does my husband have that I don’t? NONE. The ignorance of these women embarrass my ovaries. Then again they’re democrats…always living in the past.

    EXACTLY. They aren’t happy if they aren’t “victims”. It’s how they get to push their socio-political Left-wing agenda in everyone’s faces EVERY SINGLE DAY.

    I loved it. When we talk about equality, all we talk about is racial and women tend to get lost in the conversation. Im glad she had the balls to talk about issues EVERYDAY women deal with.

    Really? Which country do you live in? In fact I don’t think there is any country that has any such law unless you are talking about minimum wage and UNION jobs. But what do I know I’m a liberal. And oh, by the way, source?

    For those who didn’t agree with Meryl, check out the payout rates for American Hustle (I thin it was). Amy Adams and Lawrence got 2% compared to something like 3% for the actors. That’s millions. Horrible, horrible stuff. And of course it’s common in most if not all jobs. So these ladies have a point.
