Nineteen female musicians who worked on "Mona Lisa Smile" - a 2003 chick flick about professors being repressed at a women's college in the '50s - were paid less than their male counterparts and will get $3,500 each.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced yesterday that the producers - Revolution Studios and Smile Productions - agreed to the settlement without admitting any wrongdoing.

"It is so ironic," said EEOC lawyer Stella Yamada of the allegations involving a movie that focused on women standing up for their rights.

"We're happy for the females who came forward."
