Salma Hayek: Harvey Weinstein is trying to discredit women of colour

Cannes 2018: Hayek calls on male stars to take pay cuts

The initiative has been taken up by French gender equality movement 5050x2020 that aims to highlight the hurdles that women have to cross to be able to climb up the professional and social ladder in the film industry.

Her refusals of massages, showers and sex enraged him, she wrote, adding: "I don't think he hated anything more than the word "no". "I hope I can get another job".

Instagram Salma Hayek shared a series of photos in which she is depicted in this luxurious gown. It is a well-known fact, if you are a woman of color, people believe what you say less.

A day after joining more than 80 women's protest at the Cannes Film Festival, Salma Hayek said Sunday that change for women in Hollywood is already happening. The actress-producer said she's sold four TV shows about women this year.

Weinstein at the time issued a lengthy statement of denial.

"The men are terrified", she said.

Hayek said inflated fees demanded by some leading actors, whom she did not name, could mean there was less money left for their female co-stars.

Over the course of her career, Hayek has seen tangible signs that the conversation around women's equality in film has shifted, saying it was tempting to fall into the "trap" of focusing on what needs to be done without acknowledging how much has changed.

"Personally, as a woman that has been part of this community and has had to go through the struggles that all women have had to go through, it's an important step to see this happen", she said. She said he specifically contested her and Lupita Nyongo'o claims because they were the "easiest to get discredited" as women of colour.

Hayek isn't the only one calling for men to take a pay cut.

Hayek, whose December New York Times essay detailed the disgraced movie producer's alleged pattern of harassment during the production of "Frida", was one of dozens of women to accuse the movie mogul of sexual misconduct. Regarding Hayek, the mogul's spokesperson said, "all of the sexual allegations as portrayed by Salma are not accurate and others who witnessed the events have a different account of what transpired". "So he went attacking the two women of color, in hopes that if he could discredit us, he could then maybe discredit the rest".

"Women are not a minority in the world, yet the current state of our industry says otherwise [.] We stand together on these steps today as a symbol of our determination and progress".
