Salma Hayek offers a solution to the gender pay gap

Cannes 2018: Hayek calls on male stars to take pay cuts Salma Hayek: Weinstein only responded to sexual harassment allegations from women of color because they are 'the

"Black Panther" star Lupita Nyong'o described her own alleged predatory encounters with Weinstein in a New York Times piece published in October.

Hayek spoke on the #MeToo movement and the fallout from accusations against disgraced producer Weinstein on Sunday as part of the Kering "Women in Motion" talks at Cannes Film Festival, in a live-streamed interview at the Majestic Hotel.

Salma Hayek thinks Harvey Weinstein only responded to her sexual harassment claims because women of colour are "the easiest to get discredited".

"Ask what women are paid, and say, 'If she's not paid the same as the men, I'm not doing it'".

Hayek said it was hard to hire known female writers and directors in the USA now, as studios are snapping them up trying to catch up with the public mood. "So he went back attacking the two women of color, in hopes of discrediting. if he could discredit us, which would be easier for the audience, the readers, to not believe us, he could then maybe discredit the rest".

So hard, in fact, "otherwise they will kill the movie", Hayek quipped.

Some are skeptical that reducing men's pay is the way to gender parity, saying that in most industries, the pay gap emerges when men get high-skilled jobs and when women take time away from the job market to have children.

(Dunya News) - Dozens of women film stars have held a protest at the Cannes film festival against gender-based discrimination in the industry. The actress, for instance, said she'd sold four television shows about women just this year.

"The men are terrified", she said. The predators are hiding. "You feel this very palpable atmosphere", she concluded.

Cate Blanchett, Kristen Stewart and Salma Hayek were among those taking part in the red-carpet demonstration. "We should have come together, because that's what's made the difference, we should have come together sooner". "Because men have the opportunity to rethink what it means to be a man, and this comes with a lot of freedom". "I can't find enough female writers and directors", Hayek said.
