Comedians React to 208 More Years of Gender Inequality


A number of comedians including Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph, and John Mulaney join up for the Equality Can’t Wait campaign

Comedians React to 208 More Years of Gender Inequality

The Equality Can’t Wait campaign is kicking off today with a video series that explains why 208 more years of inequality is 'No Joke.' 

The campaign was inspired by a recent World Economic Forum blog post which projected that, at the current pace of change, it will take the United States another 208 years to achieve gender equality. Melinda wrote a USA Today op-ed on this topic in June.

With Natasha Lyonne directing, several high-profile comedians (including Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph, Carol Burnett, Uzo Aduba, Ilana Glazer, and John Mulaney) joined in the effort to urge people to action and draw greater attention to the need for gender equality in our lifetime.

The campaign is sponsored by Pivotal Ventures, and in partnership with R/GA Chicago.

More videos in the series can be found here.

The video is live on On the site you will also find more information and details on how people can take action in their own lives to accelerate progress. The campaign can also be followed on Facebook, Instagram (@EqualityCantWait) and Twitter (@EqltyCantWait).
