Gender inequality has always been prevalent. It isn't restricted to certain sections of the society. From celebrities to government officials, everyone is subject to it. But, the celebrities have lately been a major voice addressing the issue. These Hollywood divas slammed sexist questions when asked!
Just a few months ago, many actresses in Hollywood started raising their voices against sexism that exists in Hollywood and also, supported their fellow actresses who were subject to it. Jennifer Lawrence spoke about the issue through her letter to Lenny that gained a lot of importance.
Sexism needn't have to always be associated with one's wage or profession, though those are the very common ones. For instance, an actress is called 'feminist' only because she's clad in pink or carried 'girly' stuff.
An actress on the red carpet, who is present at the occasion to receive an award for her brilliant acting skills is questioned about the contents in her purse! This is the limit. Once, Ariana Grande was on a radio interview and this is what happened :
The radio jockeys asked what was her favorite emoticon. When she said the unicorn, the jockeys just sighed saying " girls", to which Ariana gave it back saying, "Boys. They always use unicorn". She also shut them up by answering to their sexist questions.
Such incidents are too common everywhere around the world and unfortunately, it's the women who are mostly subject to such sexist questions and comments. When it comes to female celebrities, all they want to know is what they eat and what they wear.
It could also be due to those handful of celebrities who are famous for no reason and pay importance to nothing but their appearance. But, these beauties proved to the world they are more than just that. Let's have a look at the Hollywood divas who slammed the sexist questions asked to them :
On being asked less irrelevant questions and sitting next to an actor who was subject to important questions, "How come you get the really interesting existential question and I get the rabbit food question?"
When she was asked about her weight during a movie interview, "Would you feel comfortable if I ask you how much you weigh? The film is more interesting than discussing this subject."
When an interviewer wanted details about her fitness, she said, "Are you trying to lose weight?"
When Taylor Swift was asked why she always writes songs about her ex-boyfriends, she said, "No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says that about Bruno Mars.
When Stone was asked about her hair color while sitting next to her ex-boyfriend Andrew Garfield and he says he isn't asked such questions, she said, "It's sexist".
Megan Fox on women being branded as "difficult" to work with, "If they show up on set and they don't have a smile on their face, then they're tagged a bitch, and that is really unfortunate."
Beyonce on every woman being termed 'bossy', she said, "I'm not bossy. I am the boss".
