Melinda Gates launches “Equality Can’t Wait” serious-comedy campaign

Melinda Gates launches “Equality Can’t Wait” serious-comedy campaign

Philanthropist Melinda Gates is working to approach the gender gap, and the “projected 208-year timeline to close it,” with her new “Equality Can’t Wait” video campaign.

The five-minute rollout features comedians Maya Rudolph, Fred Armisen, John Mulaney, Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho, and others dishing funny one-liners about a serious topic: gender equality.

“I think comedians can sometimes speak the truth to society about the things that are truly going on and that we don’t want to face,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

Gates hopes the video will “open the door to the conversation.”
