Bonnie Says: Charlize Theron stands up for equal pay for women in Hollywood

Charlize Theron, hooray for you for standing up for equal pay for women in Hollywood. Theron refused to reprise her role as the evil queen Ravenna in a follow-up to 2012's "Snow White and the Huntsman" until Universal Pictures agreed to pay her $10 million -- the same amount as co-star Chris Hemsworth.

She proved that it literally pays to be a demanding woman. And it appears that Hollywood's female talent will have to be demanding to stand up for what's right.

Hollywood stars are looked on as role models. So it's great that Theron stood up to a big studio and insisted that she get equal pay for equal work. If more actresses follow her lead, then the moviemaking industry may be forced to change its ways. -- Bonnie Fuller
