Melinda Gates, Sarah Silverman Maya Rudolph and others refuse to wait 208 years for gender equality. That’s why this group of comedians, actors and activists has put together a video series calling out gender inequality in ‘Equality Can’t Wait.’

The campaign is launching with Melinda Gates’ Pivotal Ventures organization, and notes that it 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.

Created in partnership with R/GA Chicago, this campaign kicks off today (6 August) with a video series that explains why 208 more years of inequality is ‘No Joke.’ With Natasha Lyonne directing, several high-profile comedians and actors, including Sarah Silverman, Maya Rudolph, Carol Burnett, Uzo Aduba, Ilana Glazer, John Mulaney and others, joined in the effort to urge people to action and draw greater attention to the need for gender equality in our lifetime.
