Women in the past and are still striving hard to get their pay equal to their male counterparts. The Hollywood actress Suzanne Somers was one among them who got sacked for demanding “equal pay” for her role in one of the most popular rom-com series of the 1970s titled Three’s Company.
According to The biography, she told People that, she was even humiliated by the crew by saying, ‘John Ritter’ ( who was one among the leads) is probably the only star of the series, and hence, she should never have the audacity to stand up for her equal pay.
No wonder, women are still silenced by our “Strong men, don’t bow women” culture.
