OK, not really. The video’s premise is that if we can raise $30 trillion, we can pay every working woman in America the money she’ll lose for having a vagina. The money will go instead to NWLC, which crafts equal pay legislation and advocates for pay equality. Keep reading »

5 Lady Comic Memoirs, Ranked (Spoiler: #1 Is Not Bossypants)

There’s a lot to look forward to this fall, like crunchy leaves and pumpkin everything and not being so hot you want to die, but there’s one thing that stands out: I’m talking about a book.

It’s called Yes Please, and it’s coming out on October 28th, thus making Halloween only the second coolest thing to happen that week.

Dear Variety Columnist Brian Lowry,

You wrote a negative review of Sarah Silverman’s new comedy special, “We Are Miracles,” which aired on HBO Saturday night.

And I get it.

The special felt stale, pointlessly antagonistic, and lacked actual jokes. But worse than the program itself was the bizarrely-gendered language you used to smash it.

The title of your piece, which I can only assume was approved by a Victorian-era ghost, was “Sarah Silverman’s Bad Career Choice: Being as Dirty as the Guys.” In the review, you claim Silverman appeared, “determined to prove she can be as dirty and distasteful as the boys.” Keep reading »
