The actor, who's made a splash as James Bond in recent years (and to think, I was just talking about James Bond's tuxedo), is standing up, in a dress, to highlight the disparities between men and women in the workplace. But, alas, it doesn't stop there.
Recognize the voice? That's Judi Dench, who plays M in the Bond series, narrating the public service announcement (<click on that to see the video) that outlines facts about: violence against woman, unequal pay rates, unequal business positions, harassment, education, and more.
On the one hand, we have Willow Smith (daughter of Will Smith & Jada Pickett-Smith) singing about being a "21st Century Girl ": "on a mission … with no restrictions, … I do what I like…I set no boundaries, the world don't own me…"
Well, we're not quite there yet. Another singer, Annie Lennox, articulates that here. But Willow is young and so is the century.
Everything is changing so fast in the technology world, and in the world because of technology, so it seems like things could start changing fast, and faster, on the gener disparity front as well.
After all, women are more than 50% of the population – and guess what? A whole lot of that percentage is Boomer women.
We can change the world in our lifetime. We can.
