Benedict Cumberbatch Will Only Take Jobs With Equal Pay For Women
Benedict Cumberbatch has spoken out about equal pay and decided that he will only take jobs where women are getting paid the same as him.
“Look at your quotas. Ask what women are being paid, and say: ‘If she’s not paid the same as the men, I’m not doing it,’” he explained in an interview with Radio Times. He went on to explain how he hopes to use his own platform and celebrity to provide opportunities for women to develop their careers.
“If it’s centered around my name, to get investors, then we can use that attention for a raft of female projects,” he added.
