The wage gap between men and women does not disappear. Forbes has published its annual report with the list of highest paid Hollywood actresses in 2019.

In addition to the detailed earnings report, the analysis of the lists has revealed two serious problems. The first is the upward trend in the generation of earnings from streaming platforms, many of the stars on the list do not reap awards and presences on cinema screens, their audience is that of the digital screens of smart devices.

The second is the eternal gender inequality in terms of obtaining earnings, an aspect no less than that to date does not advance in positive terms for women.

# 1 Scarlett Johansonn, with earnings of $56 million from her stakes in Marvel productions.
