In the next wave of the #MeToo movement, women in the industry are breaking long-held taboos about talking about salary.
- Octavia Spencer told a moving story at a Sundance panel about teaming up with Jessica Chastain on a movie, and Chastain demanding Spencer get paid as much as she did. The result for Spencer? Five times her normal salary.
- On the TV side of things, some women writers have launched a Google doc where people can anonymously enter their salary, and people can see roughly who is making what from each studio.
- It looks like CBS and Viacom are set to re-combine, but there may well be a battle between Shari Redstone and Les Moonves along the way.
