Scoop: Beyoncé lobbies for equal pay for women 

Beyoncé is bringing girl power to the workplace.

“We need to stop buying into the myth about gender equality. It isn’t a reality yet,” the brainy pop star writes in an essay issued by The Shriver Report.

Her woes against unequal pay are in sync with in a recent San Diego State University study, even though 2013 was a banner year for women in Hollywood with the Jennifer Lawrence-led “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” the highest-grossing film and Disney Animation’s sisterhood fairy tale “Frozen” the studio’s most successful film since “The Lion King.”

Issued Tuesday, the Celluloid Ceiling Report found that women held an even smaller percentage of jobs on the top 250 domestic grossing films of 2013 than they did in 1998.
