W aiting 208 years for gender equality may sound comically absurd—but it's no joke. Who better to make that point than a group of comedians?

We invited a few of our favorite comics—from Maya Rudolph to Ilana Glazer and more—to share their personal stories and help explain some of the barriers that hold women back. Watch them riff on women's health, unpaid labor, and the gender gaps in tech, leadership, and elected office.

Equality can’t wait—and we can’t wait to act, either. Make a commitment to stand up for equality in your home, workplace, and community.

I think equality has arrived, whether you are now, do not have an unnecessary dependency, the important thing is now. Now has power, use this power, forget the past and don't think about the future, the important thing is now, I think to say that in 208 years or 2 days, whatever the amount, this conversation that plays something for the future it is a form of mental slavery. Let us remember then - THE IMPORTANT IS THE NOW.
