‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch comedienne Sasheer Zamata is taking a stand for Women’s Rights!
The American Civil Liberties Union has named the versatile funnywoman as its newest “Celebrity Ambassador for the Women’s Right Project,” where she is working to raise awareness of the biases that women, and “women of color” face on a daily basis.
Zamata, 29, became a regular on ‘SNL’ in January 2014 and has put her fame to good work writing on the ACLU’s website saying…“Some of us have more [privilege] than others, and through no fault of our own. It’s a silent benefactor that helps us even when we don’t know it, making structural discrimination difficult to see. And it disproportionately affects women.”
Pointing out that there is a constant attack on women’s pay rates, health care and educational opportunities, Zamata urges everyone to speak up so their voices can be heard and action will take place.
