'That’s A $500,000 Vagina Tax!'

To kick off a new campaign calling for equal pay, Sarah Silverman says she’s doing the only thing she can to ensure her wages won’t be stolen just for being a women: getting a penis.

The video launches the National Women’s Law Center’s Equal Payback Project campaign. Silverman says that for women who want to take less extreme measures than getting new genitalia, the campaign is aimed at crowdfunding the wage gap.

The money raised, however, will actually go to the NWLC, which is fighting to end the wage gap through legislation.
