Pay Me What I'm Worth - Viola Davis demands equal pay to top white actresses

American actress, Viola Davis has said that she wants to be paid the same as Meryl Streep and other top white actresses.

According to Page Six reports, Davis said that at the Women in the World Salon in Los Angeles.

The Oscar winner said, “I have a career that’s probably comparable to Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Sigourney Weaver,” saying that the other women have had similar training and education. “They had the same path as me, and yet I am nowhere near them,” she said. “Not as far as money.”

Davis said she’s no longer “hustling for my worth. I’m worthy. When I came out of my mother’s womb, I came out worthy.”

In 2017, Viola Davis took home the Best Actress in a Supporting Role at the Oscars for her role in Fences. She was also nominated for two more Academy Awards for The Help and Doubt.

Davis also has appeared in some high caliber blockbusters including Suicide Squad as well as being the first African-American woman to win the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a leading role Drama for How to Get Away with Murder.
