Wage inequality is one of the major battles women of all backgrounds are currently fighting around the world, and Sarah Silverman is joining the fray with her new video for #Ask4More.
#Ask4More is part of Levo League, with the goal of educating women and men about the history of pay inequality and how it affects women in their day-to-day lives. The organization also encourages women to negotiate their pay rates, gives them with tips and techniques, while also providing job listings from major companies across the United States. Read More

Of course Sarah Silverman is the adorable and bold front woman for the new campaign called The Equal Payback Project, aiming to close the wage gap! And, of course being provocative and bold and shocking to those fighting to raise the gap is a way that the issue will gain plenty of attention. Read More

My favorite thing about lazy Sundays is watching Saturday Night Live with breakfast. Is this really lame of me? Maybe, but I like to laugh alone with cereal.
This weekend featured yet another gem of a lady-led sketch featuring host Sarah Silverman, Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant, and Kate McKinnon as the big-haired, shoulder-padded stars of Supportive Women, the soap that no one watched, because, who wants to watch women on television unless they are conspiring to steal their best friend's husband?
Oh, you do? Here. Read More

I have to admit, it's a little difficult to write a review about someone I have admired and followed since I first got into stand-up comedy. I still remember the first time I saw comedian Sarah Silverman perform live back home at a show in Manchester, New Hampshire, and I knew all her jokes and delivery by heart so well I could say them along with her. I recently watched Silverman’s HBO special We are Miracles (released November 2013) before getting to listen to the album version, which just came out September 23 in the US on Sub Pop. Read More

To be completely honest, Joan Rivers was never my favorite comedienne. Her hard-hitting jokes, told mostly at the expense of famous others (when they weren’t at her own expense) were too sharp-tongued for my taste. I thought of Rivers as overly venomous, sometimes tactless, and largely inappropriate.
It wasn’t until I heard of her passing that I realized my latent admiration. In fact, it was the very dislike of her comedy that caused me to like her most; she didn’t care if you liked what she was saying, she was going to say it anyway. Read More

These past few weeks, I am 100% pro-Sarah Silverman! From her response to the roast of James Franco to her touching tribute to her dog, she's making it hard to decide if I want to be her or if I want to be making out with her. Now, SS is adding to her street cred with an appearance in Psychic Friend's new music video for "We Do Not Belong."
In the video, Silverman plays a girl in a mental hospital who, despite doctors' various treatments, remains unresponsive. It is after she catches a clip of people dancing that one doctor makes a connection that could get Silverman out of her shell. Read More
