Sarah Silverman is known for her quick — and commonly vulgar — wit. When she takes the stage, she holds nothing back, chuckling about the most morose subjects.
This time, though, she's not laughing. She uses her no-holds-barred attitude to show her support for, apparently, the last thing she considers a joke: women's rights.
As National Equal Pay Day approaches on April 14, Silverman is joining Levo's #Ask4More campaign, which encourages women to stand up for what they deserve in the workplace. Levo is an online resource for the career advancement of young women.
In a video for the campaign (below), previewed first by People, the 44-year-old comedian shares her personal experience with inequality in Hollywood. She was once paid $10 for a 15-minute performance when a male comedian in the same spot earned $60.
