Amy Schumer

I would like to say that I have been selling out arenas these last couple years. Something a female comic has never done. That's a big deal to me, especially because I know I do my best every night on stage for the audience and they have a good time. I didn't ask for the same as my friends. I did ask for more than the initial offer. I will continue to work my ass off and be the best performer I can be. The reports of me 'demanding' or 'insisting' on equal pay to them aren't a true. #fat #stealsjokes.feedback

Clare Balding

1970: Equal Pay Act. 2010: Equality Act. 2020: BBC target. We're standing together to politely suggest they can do better.feedback

Helen Rose

We've been explicit about the drivers of our gender pay gap. For us, that was about getting across to our partners [employees] the difference between an equal pay issue and having a gender pay gap. We don't have an equal pay issue. We pay equally for people on the same grade. Just 1% of our 31% pay gap comes from [unequal pay]; the remaining 30% comes from the makeup of our workforce.feedback

Paul Kelly - Blacks Solicitors

If she suspects she is being paid less than a male colleague for doing 'like work' of an 'equivalent value' she may have an equal pay claim. Firstly she needs to identify an actual comparator of the opposite sex who performs broadly similar work but is paid more.feedback

Serena Williams

I remember, I went through the drive-through to deposit my check and they were like, I think you need to come in for this. When the subject of equal pay comes up, it frustrates me because I know firsthand that I, like you, have done the same work and made the same sacrifices as our male counterparts. I would never want my daughter to be paid less than my son for the same work. Nor would you.feedback

Emma Stone

In my career so far, I've needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them. And that's something they do for me because they feel it's what's right and fair, so that's something that's also not discussed, necessarily -- that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, That's what's fair. She's (character) such a coach and she knows sports psychology, and she instantly reduced it to playing catch, so I got to feel like a golden retriever running after a ball, and just making sure the ball was in front of my face.feedback

Emma Stone

At our best right right now we're making 80 cents to the dollar. In my career so far, I've needed my male co-stars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them. And that's something they do for me because they feel it's what's right and fair. That's something that's also not discussed, necessarily – that our getting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, That's what's fair.feedback

Helen Long

These vessels represent some aspects of the women's movement and women's lives today. They have marks from horsehair, representing the sacrifice Emily Davison made at the Epsom Derby. They are embedded with lace to show the struggle of women in the industrial revolution. They are scarred and cut to represent domestic abuse and FGM. They are sewn into the base to celebrate the Ford Dagenham women's worker's strike for equal pay.feedback

Mercedes Sanchez - Unite

Staff at the Bank of England have made their anger clear by voting for strike action due to their employer's outright refusal to negotiate a fair pay deal for its workforce. Mark Carney needs to get his own house in order. It is nothing short of shameful that the iconic symbol of financial services in the UK is choosing to ride roughshod over the concerns of its dedicated and hardworking staff and impose this derisory pay deal. The governor can no longer turn a blind eye to what is happening on his own patch.feedback

Mercedes Sanchez - Unite

The result of the bank's unwillingness to negotiate fair pay will be that the bank's sites, including the iconic Threadneedle Street in the city of London will effectively be inoperable without the maintenance, parlours and security staff. Mark Carney needs to get his own house in order. It is nothing short of shameful that the iconic symbol of financial services in the UK is choosing to ride roughshod over the concerns of its dedicated and hardworking staff and impose this derisory pay deal. The governor can no longer turn a blind eye to what is happening on his own patch.feedback

Mercedes Sanchez - Unite

The Bank of England now faces its first strike action in over 50 years when staff in vital services across the country will be taking action because of the bank's total refusal to accept that their workforce are struggling to meet their costs of living. The result of the bank's unwillingness to negotiate fair pay will be that the bank's sites, including the iconic Threadneedle Street in the city of London will effectively be inoperable without the maintenance, parlours and security staff.feedback

Armine Yalnizyan - Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives

But they're nowhere near closed. It's people that don't have more than high-school [education] that see the biggest wage gap between women and men.feedback

Owen Jones

Theresa May ruled out fair pay for nurses, then found huge extra sums for Northern Ireland and Buckingham Palace. It’s time to end the austerity con. There is no magic money tree, say the Tories: unless it’s to bribe extremists to keep them in power, or to renovate the palaces of multi-millionaire monarchs. Today, nurses take to the streets to demand an end to a pay freeze that has slashed the living standards of these life-saving, care-giving national heroes. One such nurse confronted Theresa May – whose lack of emotional intelligence is only matched by her lack of authority – on national television before the election. There was no magic money tree, was May’s robotic response. If the nurse had been met with a middle finger, it would scarcely have been less insulting.feedback

Letitia James

Being underpaid once should not condemn one to a lifetime of inequity. We will never close the wage gap unless we continue to enact proactive policies that promote economic justice and equity.feedback

Frances O'Grady

Going on strike is always a last resort when bosses refuse to negotiate or compromise. Strikes are far less common these days and tend to be short. With the average annual wage still worth £1,000 less than a decade ago, it is not surprising that many strikes are about fair pay.feedback

Deborah Rhode

This decision is a step in the wrong direction if we're trying to really ensure that women have work opportunities of equal pay. You can't allow prior discriminatory salary setting to justify future ones, or you perpetuate the discrimination.feedback

Vivek Patil

When it comes to our values about the environment, about women's rights, about equal pay, let us stand up and be known for something. We may be slapped on the wrist, but I am willing to stand up.feedback

Aspasia Bizopoulou

Accounting for the extent to which men and women do different activities under the same job title can explain up to 50pc of the gender wage gap.feedback

Elise Gould - Economic Policy Institute

As you move up, women are not occupying places at the top the way men are. The wage gap at the top is much larger than it is at the middle or the bottom.feedback

Arthur Cheliotes

We expected that these women and people of color would be paid fairly since the Equal Pay Act has been the law of the land since 1963. Yet administrative managers, women with decades of experience, were paid less than 60 cents for every dollar their male predecessors earned.feedback

Emily Martin

I'm glad that states are really focusing on equal pay and exploring new policy solutions to ensure women are paid equally to men, in part because federal policy-making is at best stalled on this issue, and at worst, we might be seeing rollbacks in coming years. [It's] not absolutely beyond imagination that [groups] could try to do the same on equal pay. I think the blowback would be enormous.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

Equal pay is essential to the goal of gender equality. This issue speaks to how we value women's labor, knowledge, time, training, and so much more. In short, it's about women's worth. There's nothing more fundamental than that.feedback

Snorri Olsen

There's a tendency to look at work usually done by men as more valuable. This is technically a discussion of equal pay, but it's really a question about equality in our society.feedback

Hilary Knight

We are fortunate to have strong pioneers who have changed the landscape of their sport. Figures such as Billie Jean King or teams like U.S. women's soccer have built a foundation not only for hope, but for action. As leaders in the sport of hockey, we are asking for equitable support and encouragement for participation for women. This is another important step for women in sports, but also for women at large and for generations to come in our fight for equal pay and support.feedback

Helen Gibbons

3:20 represents the time that Australian women ostensibly start working for free in comparison to men if you take into account the gender pay gap. We know that this has traditionally been seen as women's work. It's 2017 and this is not OK to continue. The people who work in this sector demand equal pay.feedback

Kimberly Kindy

In a narrow result that divided along party lines, the Senate voted 49 to 48 to eliminate the regulation, dubbed the Fair Pay and Safe Workplaces rule. Finalized in August and blocked by a court order in October, the rule would limit the ability of companies with recent safety problems to complete for government contracts unless they agreed to remedies. The measure to abolish it had already cleared the House. Trump is expected to sign it. A half-dozen other worker safety regulations are in Republican crosshairs, with one headed to the Senate floor as soon as this week.feedback

Julia Hartley-Brewer

Emma Watson: Feminism, feminism... gender wage gap... why oh why am I not taken seriously... feminism... oh, and here are my [breasts]! Feminism is about having a choice. It's not a stick with which to beat other women. It's about freedom, it's about liberation, it's about equality. I really don't know what my [breasts] have to do with it...They're saying I can't be a feminist and have boobs.feedback

Jacob Anderegg

After reading Mr. Green's Op Ed it is clear that he hasn't read the bill and doesn't understand that my bill calls for a study to be conducted by the Utah State Department of Workforce Services. The study may show that there isn't a wage gap problem within the State, in which Mr. Green's concern is mute. But it may show that a wage gap problem does indeed exist and it will help us quantify the size of the problem.feedback

James Schneider - Goldman Sachs Group

Companies may opt to hire more American tech workers at higher salaries given the reduced wage gap, with increase labor costs across tech. We calculate total costs for IT services companies could rise by 3%-14%, depending on the reforms.feedback

Victoria A. Budson

This provision won't close the wage gap, but it's an important piece in helping close it. You're not allowed to ask someone's marital status or if they are planning to have children. We have a long standing history of things not to ask an employee. This would just be one thing added to that.feedback

Hillary Clinton

Mr. Trump accused me of playing, quote, the woman card. Well if fighting for women's healthcare and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card the deal me in.feedback

Hillary Clinton

This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs, and somebody who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers, who has said women don't deserve equal pay unless they do as good a job as men.feedback

Hillary Clinton

If fighting for women's health care, and paid family leave, and equal pay, is playing the woman card, then deal me in. We also signed a lot of delegates. You've got to spend time with Americans of all sorts and backgrounds in every part of our country. He has every right to and I think he should do it.feedback

Sarah Chamberlain - Main Street Partnership

Equal pay doesn't come up, I'm not saying it's not an issue but it doesn't come up. I think it's identity politics, I really do.feedback

Seamus Kearney - Euronews

Speaking of the pay gap, European Equal Pay Day has just been held. To earn exactly what men were paid in 2011, the average European woman would've had to carry on working roughly an extra two months, right up until March the 2nd, 2012.feedback
