Courtney A. Kemp, the creator of the hit Starz series ‘Power,’ says that she believes her gender plays a significant role in how much money she’s made throughout her career.
via Page Six:
“I do think I would have more money and power if I was a man in this business.”
She recalled being “in a contract negotiation, and I got an offer that was way low. I asked my lawyer — who is a white man — ‘Why did they offer me so little money?’ And he said, straight up, ‘Because you are a woman.’ We always have to work harder.”
She’s absolutely correct. Kudos to Courtney for speaking up and contributing to the conversation surrounding equal pay in Hollywood.
