Funny And Feminist

Mar 10, 2016

A sketch comedy show at Dad’s Garage in Atlanta promises to deliver laughs and “smash the patriarchy right through the glass ceiling.” It’s called “Woman of the Year” and features sketches that challenge traditional notions of how women are supposed to act, dress and behave.

We meet the creator and co-writer of the show, Megan Leahy, and talk about the evolution of feminist comedy with stand-up comedian Dulce Sloan and Gina Barreca, a University of Connecticut professor of English and feminist theory.
