Salma Hayek Calls Out Society for Putting Immense Pressure on Women

Salma Hayek poses with director Jude Kelly at the presentation of her animated film The Prophet held during Southbank Centre’s WOW Women of the World festival at Southbank Centre on Sunday (March 8) in London, England.

The 48-year-old actress recently spoke out about the immense pressure on women in the current day and age.

“The amount of pressure on women now, it’s crazy. You have to be much better than your male colleagues, just so you can maybe try and get the same salary as them. And you still have to be a good wife and mother. And now you also have to be skinny, and you have to look 20 when you’re 40. It’s too much. We need to stop with the crazy expectations, give ourselves a break,” she told The Guardian.

    I’d like to see her take on age discrimination in the ordinary workplace, although I am convinced it also exists in Hollywood and other places where films are shot or plays are performed. But the entertainment business is only a small segment of the US workforce.
    I think we have done a good job for the most part in eliminating race and sex discrimination, but age is the last barrier to overcome.

    Men have built their strong position over centuries, and a lot changed now, but she’s right, there is still too much pressure on women. How many times did I see really ugly men commenting on some women’s appearence? (which, btw, looked 10x better)
