James Bond crossdresses to promote equality for women





Watch as Daniel Craig (as James Bond) crossdresses to promote equality for women (although I wonder how much inequality in terms of the workplace is due to women choosing to be stay at home moms, and the fact that men who choose to be stay at home dads aren't looked at in the same way).

  1. To answer your first question, there have been studies of wage inequality that adjust for time off taken due to pregnancy/childrearing and women STILL make less than men.

  2. Women get paid 25% less than men on average. It's a shame that you think that the workplace inequality is due to women becoming stay at home mums, or being expected to stay at home. There is still a serious gender pay gap.

  3. Well then, choose to be a stay at home Dad and change the way people look at you. Women have been forced to do this since the 1960's just to be considered as more than Secretaries in the workplace. God forbid you have to take on the same burdens since you're such a special white male. There are very few glass ceilings for you to tackle, so maybe you should take on this one, who knows, maybe you can shatter it.
