Jaya Bachchan feels pay disparity exists due to 'insecurity of a man', ‘Women also have double standards'

Jaya Bachchan recently spoke about the pay parity issues existing in different fields and also mentioned that women are their own enemies.’

Veteran actor Jaya Bachchan recently spoke about the pay parity issues existing in different fields. In the latest episode of Navya Naveli Nanda’s podcast ‘What The Hell Navya’, she talked about how the issue of pay parity exists and cited examples of athletes.


Navya said, ‘In sports, female athletes are not paid as much as male athletes. It has happened in NBA and Tennis.’ Her mother Shweta Bachchan reacted to it and termed these practices ‘extremely unfair’. She mentioned that this problem is surviving because people are not standing up against it.


Actor Jaya Bachchan too expressed her thoughts on the topic and said that the reason behind pay disparity is insecurity in men. She told, ‘It is the insecurity of a man who is sitting at the head of it. He is insecure, which is why he feels it is easier to put a woman down - in every field and in every way. It is an outcome of that kind of mindset.


‘For centuries women have never stood up for themselves. There are exceptions, but now it's changing the younger generation it's changing and it's also because mothers are realising that my daughter and my son are as good as each other,’ Jaya further added.


Jaya further mentioned, ‘Educated women also have double standards, which is so sad. Sometimes I want to say it but do not feel good about saying it, but sometimes women are their own enemies. Of course, it's also the father's responsibility.’


On the work front, Jaya Bachchan will next be seen in Karan Johar's ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.’ The film also features Alia Bhatt, Ranveer Singh, Dharmendra and Shabana Azmi and is all set to hit the theatres on April next year.
