Kristen Schaal, The Daily Show’s Senior Women’s Issues Correspondent, satirizes current women’s issues (obviously) on last week’s show. In honor of Women’s History Month, she, with the aid of host Jon Stewart, took on Susan Patton’s book Marry Smart.
With biting wit, the two deconstructed the ever-growing pressures that women face in today’s society. Rather than discuss ways to improve equality, Patton is promoting ways for women to ignore their education, their goals, their overall right to choose for the sake of having a husband and family before their insides wither up and die.
The two segments highlight the constant barrage of media that focuses on women’s reproductive issues, rather than issues of equality.
