'So I think it's mainly in the beginning, just be aware of that and going, "Can you just check?' she said of handling negotiations". It's exciting yet sad and scary. Making sure that everybody is heard in the industries that need to be heard and making sure that we are doing everything we can as quickly as possible but correctly so that this is a change that will stay.

'It was my first job and I was not discriminated against because I was a woman, in my paycheck'. "And we got to revisit stuff that normally you don't get to have a second chance on", Clarke explained to Variety.
