The comedian is swapping parts for a shot at equality.
Right now in the year 2014 you can have a video conversation with a friend in another part of the world while you’re walking down the street. Self-driving cars exist. We can make meat in a lab. If we can do all that, it’s a bit strange to think that the average working woman still only makes 78 cents for every dollar a man makes. Over the course of a career, that difference can add up to women losing out on more than $439,000 each, just for not being a man.
Sarah Silverman has decided to not only be the spokesperson for this new campaign for equal pay advocacy through the National Women’s Law Center and agency Droga5, she’s also making some changes to personally close the wage gap. Namely, getting a penis.
