On Wednesday, Clueless alum Stacey Dash stopped by “The Meredith Vieira Show,” where she scolded women for complaining about gender discrimination in the workforce, urging them to “stop making excuses” and just work harder than their male counterparts.

“I feel like it’s an excuse. It’s the same thing with race. You know?,” Dash said. “It’s an excuse. Stop making excuses. You know? If there are opportunities, seize them and be prepared for them and, and be the best if that’s what it takes. If you have to be extraordinary, then be extraordinary.”

Vieira argued, however, that women are earning only “78 cents for every dollar a man makes” proving there is “something wrong” with the system, and that, if things continue to progress at this rate, it will take four decades for her daughter to earn as much as her male colleagues.

“I don’t know if that’s true,” Dash replied. “I feel like your daughter will be able to make just as much money as she wants. Just like you. Look at you.”

Dash said she wouldn’t allow herself to be “a victim.”

“I won’t put my fate in anything other than my own actions and taking my destiny in my hands,” she said.

“I’m not saying I’m a victim. I’m pissed off,” Vieira replied.

Although Dash made it clear she doesn’t believe gender inequality in the workforce is a real thing, we wonder how she would feel if she knew how much her White male colleagues in conservative news are getting paid to spout their opinions.
