Hollywood’s gender pay gap revealed: male stars earn $1m more per film than women
Disparity is almost the same in 2015 as in 1980, say researchers who call for contracts to be made publicIn the Richard Curtis film Notting Hill, the bumbling stockbroker Bernie, played by Hugh Bonneville, meets Anna Scott, unaware that Julia Roberts’s character is the world’s most famous female actor.Upon learning her profession, he patronisingly commiserates with Anna about the low wages paid to actors, declaring them “a scandal”, and asks how much she received for her last movie. Without missing a beat, Anna replies “$15m”, the actual amount Roberts was paid to do the movie, a rare example of when an actress has earned more than her male counterpart – in this case, Hugh Grant. For a real scandal in acting has always been the huge gender pay gap. Continue reading...

'We will not surrender': Hongkongers rally for support outside UK consulate
Protesters call on London to apply pressure on Beijing to uphold ‘one country, two systems’ agreed in 1997Hundreds of pro-democracy protesters have gathered outside the British consulate in Hong Kong, chanting “we will not surrender” as they called on the UK to come to the aid of the former British colony.Demonstrators waved the Union Jack, sang God Save the Queen and chanted “Stand for freedom, stand with Hong Kong,” as they sought to bring attention to their calls for democracy in the semi-autonomous territory, which was handed over to Chinese control in 1997.

The Testaments by Margaret Atwood review – hints of a happy ending
Atwood’s angry, pacy sequel to The Handmaid’s Tale admits a ray of light into Gilead’s toxic worldThose of us lucky enough to read The Handmaid’s Tale back when it first appeared in 1985 will remember the shock of a novel that felt both claustrophobically precise and shatteringly prescient. The newly born Republic of Gilead, with its abuses and abominations, its hideously misogynistic vocabulary and gruesomely rationalised constraints, was just about far enough from our own world to seem beguiling, but also close enough to feel like a wake-up call.Still, no one could have guessed the extent to which recent history (as well as a superb TV offshoot) would bring it eerily, terrifyingly back into focus. With the implacable rise of the Christian right in the US, never has it felt more urgent for women to guard both their bodies and their reproductive systems against (some) men and the state. Who, after all, is Donald Trump if not Commander Waterford without the charm? And I can’t be the only one who, watching the Trump crowd’s chants of “Lock her up!” or “Send her back!”, found herself thinking of taser-wielding Aunt Lydia and the handmaids’ cries of “Her fault!” when one of their number “confesses” to having been gang-raped?

The big picture: America as seen by Robert Frank
Geoff Dyer on the influential American photographer who died last Monday aged 94It’s a common urge to want to go back in time and see or hear a once revolutionary, now iconic work of art as it looked or sounded before it was assimilated into the tradition it appeared to assault. In the case of The Americans by Robert Frank (who died last week, aged 94) this is surprisingly simple. All you have to do is look at the pictures. Even now, more than 60 years later, many of the pictures in the most influential photography book of the postwar period remain hard to fathom. Several of them were shot through windows, but prior ideas of framing and focus had been thrown out of the window.The irony is that the person who had defined what American photographs should look like, Walker Evans, was one of Frank’s supporters; he recommended him for the Guggenheim fellowship that financed the road trip during which Frank took the thousands of images later edited down to the 83 printed in The Americans.

From India to Britain, every citizen is harmed by anti-migrant hostility | Kenan Malik
Politicians fan the flames to hide their own failures and erode the liberties of allIn the Indian state of Assam, the authorities are building detention camps for “illegal immigrants”, most of whom are Indian citizens. In South Africa, hundreds of Nigerian workers have been airlifted home as anti-migrant violence spirals out of control.Two different events in two different countries, but each a glimpse of the malevolent trends transforming politics globally. While neither event has received much attention in Britain, consumed as we are by all things Brexit, both throw light upon developments here, too. Continue reading...

UK blackouts raise questions over private sector’s right to profit from power
Energy network companies are under scrutiny after last month’s outage, the worst of its kind in a decadeThere is never a good time for a blackout, but for Britain’s energy companies the timing of last month’s power failure could scarcely have been worse.The best that the owners of the UK’s energy pipes and wires can expect in the coming years is a tighter squeeze on their deflated profits by the industry regulator. A Labour government could support nationalisation. In the meantime, investors are turning their backs on energy network companies. Continue reading...
