Mayim Bialik Wants People to Stop Calling Women 'Girls'

Mayim Bialik is sick of people referring to grown women as “girls.”

The Big Bang Theory actress and author took to her Facebook to share a video explaining why using the phrase “girl” is demeaning.

“When we use words to describe adult women that are typically used to describe children, it changes the way we view women — even unconsciously, so that we don’t equate them with adult men. In fact, it implies that they’re inferior to men,” she explained.

Mayim continued, “We never call men boys because it’s demeaning and emasculating.”

She later added, “Maybe if we start using language that elevates women and doesn’t equate them with sweet, small, cuddly, tender things, we’ll start treating them as more than that as well.”

'The Big Bang Theory' Renewed for Two More Seasons!

Fans of The Big Bang Theory will be happy to hear this news – the show has been renewed for two more seasons!

The five original stars of the series – Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Johnny Galecki, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar – are taking a pay cut for the additional seasons so that their co-stars Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik can get raises.

The original five have been earning $1 million an episode for the past three seasons. They will now be earning $900,000 an episode, according to THR.

Melissa and Mayim previously were earning $175,000 an episode and they are likely to be bumped to $400,000 per episode.

While The Big Bang Theory is a very costly show at $10 million per episode, with a majority of the expenses going to pay the cast, it is the number one scripted series on television in both viewers and the coveted ad demos.
