Discrimination for Superstars

This Kahoot looks at discrimination for actors/actresses and primarily focuses on a 2015 FiveThirtyEight article entitled “The Workplace is Even More Sexist In Movies Than in Reality.” The article covers occupational differences for men and women in movies using the Opusdata database, which tracks film releases, box officer performance, and screen credits. The quiz also covers two opposing blog posts, one by Jennifer Lawrence and a follow-up response by Chris Rock. Jennifer Lawrence initially argued that it was her own fault for being paid less and that she needed to do a better job negotiations. Chris Rock argued that Lawrence was still doing sufficiently better than African American women and other racial minorities.
