Black Actresses Speak Equal Pay & What They Deserve

Throughout industries, Black ladies make 64% of what non-Hispanic white males are paid (in response to stats from 2021) and as white ladies shut wage gaps, Black ladies fall additional behind. Black ladies’s wage hole was worse in 2022 than it was in 2021. That hole exists in Hollywood, even when there isn’t as a lot exhausting knowledge to again it up. What we do have are the anecdotes from Black ladies within the trade who frequently share their frustrations whereas it looks as if gender progress is reserved for white ladies solely. We see that fact amplified throughout awards season. Emma Stone simply gained her second Academy Award. It’s not that she doesn’t deserve the accolade. Stone was unbelievable in Poor Issues. However as Sarah Marrs wrote for LaineyGossip about Lily Gladstone’s loss (she was up towards Stone for Greatest Actress and would have been the primary Indigenous lady winner and solely third lady of coloration), “The priority, all the time, is that there merely aren’t the identical alternatives for ladies of coloration as their white friends. Lupita Nyong’o’s presence on the Oscars this yr reminded everybody that in a decade, she has not had one other function to place her in Oscar rivalry,” Marrs wrote. “In the meantime, Jennifer Lawrence bagged 4 nominations and one win in 5 years, and in the identical decade Lupita was an Academy Award winner, Emma Stone obtained 4 appearing nominations and two wins…. there’s extra to a profession than an Oscar, however even WITH an Oscar, it may be exhausting for ladies of coloration to advance.”
