In the past few years, only 93 percent of popular films were directed by men. 88 percent of box office hits featured a man in a leading role. Only 70 percent of speaking roles were given to men. Oh, and men also make up 80 percent of Congress.
Does this infuriate you? It should, because men deserve 100 percent. Right?
OK, just kidding. But that's the hilarious way the #MakeItFair project is trying to raise awareness of gender inequality in Hollywood, the government and Fortune 500 companies.
"#makeitfair is a call for gender equality in the stories we tell, the wages we earn, and the future we shape," the website reads. "The goal is vast and so, as artists, we decided to do what we do best: create."
They started with a video where they throw out some awful stats. Like the fact that men make up...
But the best part of the video is the satirical song they sing.
With lyrics like:
"We stand here together.
Together, we'll break down this wall.
We won't relent until it's 100 percent.
It's only fair that men should have it all."
