    I was all ready to laugh, but the message is too serious.

    Daniel Craig is a real drag

    It's amazing really that here we are 10+ years into the 21st century and women are still struggling for equality. Loved the clip - and kudos to Daniel Craig and Judi Dench for taking part :respec:

    Excellent commercial. And ERA is not passed in the US.

    Daniel Craig just got mucho points from me. It really warms my heart to see guys fighting alongside women for gender equality. One of my male Facebook friends is literally up in arms over the de-funding of Planned Parenthood, it's just awesome.

    I thought that the income gap had been closed. And the sexual assault statistics are frightening - and appalling.

    This is really excellent, but very sad that it's a video that had any reason to be done. I don't understand people who think everything is equal and fair these days. Especially women who continue to buy into sexist and misogynistic ideas.

    And there are women in other nations who don't even have the freedoms we do.

    Dream on. I supported myself as a 'bookkeeper' for many years. On several occasions when I switched jobs, I was replaced by a man who was suddenly called 'controller' and made $10,000 a year more, doing the same job I had done. No, the income gap has not been closed.

    Guess I should have posted "I thought the income gap was closing. And I'd still be wrong.
