Looking at the Relationship Between Women and Hollywood : A Time to Play Hardball: Sue a Studio

November 25, 1990

While women in other industries have sought and obtained legal redress under the Equal Pay Act and other laws, actresses continue to accept low levels of pay and the feeble justifications made by the movie industry.

Given the clear pattern of discrimination against the female members of the Screen Actors Guild, I propose that a class-action suit be filed against one of the major studios.

It's about time that the most visible women in America stood up for their rights and played hardball.
