Sarah Silverman Grows a Pair for Young Women Across America
Comedian Teams Up With Droga5 to Advocate for Women's Equal Pay (NSFW)
Oct 07, 2014
Sarah Silverman is reuniting with Droga5 for another social cause. Back in 2008, the comedian and agency partnered with the Jewish Council for Education & Research to produce the hilarious "Great Schlep." This time around, Ms. Silverman appears in a video for non-profit advocacy group the National Women's Law Center for the "Equal Payback Project," an effort to motivate millennial women to demand the same wages as their male counterparts. Using her trademark biting humor, she vows to do the only thing she can think of in order to get what's owed to her as a, um, person.
Silverman's first order of business is to raise $29,811,746,430,000 -- the approximate amount U.S. women are likely to collectively miss out on over the course of their careers thanks to wage inequality.
