Jessica Chastain Is Pushing for Gender Equality in Hollywood

“I’m not taking jobs anymore where I’m getting paid a quarter of what the male co-star is being paid,” Jessica said. I’m not allowing that in my life.”

Over her career, Jessica has become an outspoken advocate for gender equality and has pushed for more female directors and crew along with seeking better representation of female characters on screen.

“There was something huge that I recently turned down,” Jessica said. “For me, it wasn’t about the money; it was an old-fashioned problem of the wage gap. I turned it down, and they didn’t come back. I remember afterwards I was like, ‘What did I do? Maybe it was a mistake.’ But it wasn’t, because everyone in the studio system heard what I did. So what you’re doing is creating a reputation: Don’t bring Jessica something where she’s not being fairly compensated compared to the male actor. Even though I lost that film, I’ve created a boundary. I drew a line in the sand.”

Jessica Chastain & Lena Dunham Slam Bill O'Reilly at Power of Women Event

Jessica Chastain and Lena Dunham hit the carpet while attending Variety’s Power of Women event on Friday morning (April 21) at Cipriani Midtown in New York City.

The ladies both spoke at the event and took time to slam Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, who was just fired from The O’Reilly Factor amid claims of sexual harassment.

Lena spoke to honor Gretchen Carlson, who was the first woman at Fox News to speak out against sexual harassment at the company.

“I’m in the very privileged position to be able to say whatever the f–k I want most of the time,” Lena said (via Variety). “But when you work in a corporate infrastructure the challenge of coming out about sexual harassment is so massive. And to see a woman who surmounted that and bravely made space for other women to do the same is deeply inspired.”

“We also should’ve known a few years ago about Bill O’Reilly when he confused a loofah with a falafel. So this isn’t fresh info,” she added.

Jessica decided not to refer to Bill by his name during her speech.

“Most recently women said ‘No’ to a certain Fox News anchor,” she said. “After years of sexual assault accusations and settlements were unearthed, women’s rights groups called for the advertisers to pull their support from the show and companies listened. And so did Fox. As a result, the 8 o’clock news hour will be known as simply ‘The Factor.’ This is our collective power in action.”

Other women in attendance included Salma Hayek, Audra McDonald, Danielle Brooks, Chelsea Clinton, Gayle King, Ashley Graham, Vanessa Bayer, and Tina Knowles.

FYI: Jessica is wearing a Carolina Herrera dress and Stella Luna shoes. Ashley is wearing a Fleur du Mal corset and Schutz shoes.
