Sarah Silverman Ponders Sex Change to Highlight Gender Wage Gap
Comedian Sarah Silverman's latest political video is not on behalf of a specific politician. Instead, her new, soon-to-go-viral clip seeks to raise money for the National Women's Law Center, a non-profit group that works to ensure equal pay for women.
"Every year the average woman loses around $11,000 to the wage gap," Silverman says in the clip while sitting in a doctor's office ahead of a sex-change operation. "Over the course of the working years of her life, that's almost 500 grand. That's a $500,000 vagina tax."
Warning: The video has its share of racy moments.
