Carey Mulligan Speaks Out About Jennifer Lawrence's Wage Inequality Essay
Carey Mulligan is the latest star to speak out about wage inequality in Hollywood.
The 30-year-old Suffragette actress opened up about Jennifer Lawrence‘s essay regarding the differences in pay between men and women.
“I think it’s a good thing for someone like Jennifer to speak out; it means an awful lot to women,” Carey told Deadline. “Sure, there’s been cynicism toward her speaking out and the fact that she makes a lot of money, but she is completely and selflessly rising above that. (The discrepancy) is inherently unfair and she has an enormous platform to speak out against it. Men in Hollywood look up to her because she is powerful. She’s using that platform to correct something that isn’t right. It’s a long overdue conversation and it’s admirable what she has done. This is an age-old issue that’s in every part of society.”
