Zoe Saldana isn't going to let the man keep her down!

The Star Trek star says gender inequality is unfortunately still going strong in Hollywood, but frankly she ain't got time for that! She says:

"It's very hard being a woman in a man's world, and I recognized it was a man's world even when I was a kid.

It's an inequality and injustice that drove me crazy, and which I always spoke out against - and I've always been outspoken."

That drive to fight inequality has fueled a lot of Zoe's film choices over the years, leading her to kick-ass girl roles in Colombiana, Avatar, and the upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Playing all those powerful women is NOT an accident! Zoe says:

"I'm known for being selective in parts I either pick or pursue, and what matters most is that they be good female roles where the character isn't cardboard or objectified, and where there's real substance. No generic girlfriend or wife, and no sexy bombshell. Enough of that already!"

Hells yeah, gurl! Time for the ladies to take the lead!

Now if only we could get some more Zoe Saldanas into politics…

    Oh booo hoooo. Hollywood is ageist against older white men. Older white men are older than their wives in the majority of all marriages. Older white men create the largest age gap marriges per capita (not cougars). An older white male with a spouse 20 years his junior is FAR LESS likely to divorce than a cougar with such (statistics). But, can older white men get a role where HE is the cougar? Nope. The only time old men are paired up with 24 year old women in tv shows is when hollywood needs the "young wife cheating on the old husband with a stud" or "murdered for will money" plotline. There is NEVER the plotline where a young 24 year old woman cheats on her young white trash boyfriend with a rich much older man and then marries the older man and lives happily ever after (like how i was born). Look at movies from the 30's, 40s and 50s. Older men could get roles back then. Now look at hollywood today. Older white men "the inventors of all tv/film technology [before japan arose]" cant barely get on the screen they invented. But women are selfish and only see what they want to see.

    White females get tons of roles in hollywood. She's always portrayed as a "tough chick" in everything (kinda comical having watched my sisters scream at mice) but they get tough roles. . White females pretty much DOMINATE the media these days. But somehow.. the men are always the "bad guy". If Zoe can't get the kind of roles she wants.. its because white women casting people are racist not because white men are sexist.
    Doi! Whats her IQ? My girl is japanese. I want to see more asian females get in the media too. Racist White women stereotype asian women as "weak and submissive" so if ever there was a person white females OWE "tough girl" roles to.. its asian women. There is LITTLE if any hope for asian females in the media (one of the most successful females in american culture in other areas).

    "No generic girlfriend or wife, and no sexy bombshell" roles. BUT she would probably take a role where her HUSBAND is the male version of those things. Radical feminists (who are different from regular feminists who just want equal pay) are all about role reversal not gender equality.

    Her work speaks for itself. She has chosen roles wisely, and has always portrayed strong female roles.

    Re: overthere – I know what feminism is. Its where racist white women who call our asian lovers "weak and submissive" (despite the fact asian american women OUT PERFORM white women as a group in everything from advanced education to income to crime rates (lowest overall) and drug usage rates and IQ)….. play victim after 100s of years of training her children to be racist and anti Semitic. Its where ageist white females call the generation of older men who believed in them and gave them equal rights…."dirty old men" and chastise each other far dating older white men. Google the article "why you always regret falling for an older man" by Pretronella (something). Read the comments there. My mom read that article and was horrified "I dont regret your father. These are mean vicious women". And i thought "hmmm. feminism is where ageists bitch about sexists". I learned a different lesson from that article.

    Re: overthere – I love how you deflected from my comments about the ageism against older men though. I was trying to illustrate that there is more than one victim in society. Showing concern for the plight of one gender while ignoring that of another is also a form of sexism. I dont have to go back into school. I studied the first time i was there and outscored a most men AND women (The only reason I didn't graduate college is because my business had grown too fast and became 14 hour a day job. I didnt have employees back then). I love strong women. I have spent my entire adult life so far dating jewish and asian women (the two highest performing women in american culture. A female who studies in school like as if she actually wants to be equal with males). i know what strong women are. Nevermind "men vs women". Currently the white/asian household is wealthier per capita than the white household. We are outperforming white men AND women as a mating team and raising more college completing children per capita. Thats despite society's general hatred for white males over 30 and asian women.
    I'm kinda into the whole "white male asian female" domination over white/white thing.
    I'm on a whole other plain of existence. But we cant kick the butts of white couples if racist white men and women discriminate against our better half.

    LOL "it's hard being a woman in a man's world" LMAO feminists are brain dead, they really are.

    -Women have an entire month dedicated to breast cancer, even though men die more from colon/prostate cancer.
    -Women receive 25% less jail time.
    -Women are favored in divorce courts/child custody
    -Men are much more likely to be more strict against other men, women get off easy.
    -Women receive more money into healthcare than men, despite men dying from more illnesses, and living on average 5 years less.
    -Men are more likely to be homeless, the victim of a crime, die on the job, and suicide.

    Sorry brain dead feminists and whiteknight castrated males, these are not the characteristics of an "oppressed" or "victimized" gender.

    We'd be better off if all the whiny victim card playing feminists went to an island and died off. Women just like to blame their failures on everything under the sun (mostly men).
