Emilia Clarke: Sexism is Like ‘Dealing With Racism’

Emilia Clarke recently spoke to Rolling Stone Magazine where she revealed her experience with sexism in Hollywood- about how actresses, despite being the ‘lead’, have fewer lines than actors and having to come for hair & makeup earlier than their male counterparts:

“I feel so naive for saying it, but it’s like dealing with racism. You’re aware of it, and you’re aware of it, but one day, you go, ‘Oh, my God, it’s everywhere!’ Like you suddenly wake up to it and you go, ‘Wait a fucking second, are you . . . are you treating me different because I’ve got a pair of tits? Is that actually happening?’ It took me a really long time to see that I do get treated differently. But I look around, and that’s my daily life.”

  1. I agree that all people should be treated the same. Im waiting for gender quotas for jobs like bin collectors.
