No, she's not marching on Capitol Hill, but she is making her family aware of the issues. Just this month she spoke at Elle's Women in Hollywood event. She told a funny story about her husband, Ben Affleck, that captures gender inequality perfectly:
"Not long ago we both had one of those magical days which we call a junket, where we both attended these lovely events where people come in every four minutes and they ask the same questions. I told him every single person who interviewed me — and I mean every single one . . . asked me, 'How do you balance work and family?'
"[Ben] said the only thing anyone asked him repeatedly was about the tits on the 'Blurred Lines' girl! We're talking about them — they are real and they are fabulous and everyone should take a look and enjoy. As for work-life balance, he said that no one asked him about it that day. As a matter of fact, no one had ever asked him about it. Not once."
