Before we begin, let’s mention a few words and their meaning.
Sexism: a type of discrimination/prejudice against a persons sex/gender. More specific, it is when people are treated unfairly only because they are a girl or boy. Unfortunately, women are usually the ones who face sexism the most.
Patriarchy: When men have more power and control than women, who have relatively no say.
Feminism: People who campaign/support the equality of men and women
Let’s get started!
It is nothing new that sexism exists in the world. It is also nothing new that sexism (and racism, but that’s a whole other story) exists in Hollywood. I am sure that most of you know who Mark Wahlberg is, he was in Transformers.
Currently, he is shooting a movie called, “All the Money.” This is quite an ironic title because it seems that Wahlberg received all the money for reshooting some scenes. He earned about $1.5 million.
So what is the problem you ask? Or think…?!

So now, you weigh in. What are your thoughts about this, (especially given the words that were mentioned above?). How would you feel if you were treated differently than another person who completed the same job only because of your sex/gender? Please write roughly 8-12 sentences, with detail and strong opinion.
