Bad Ass Bitch of the Week- Amy Schumer!

unnamedWe have to take a second to just give it up for the awesome women who are taking over the comedy scene lately: the girls from Broad City, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Jenny Slate, the list goes on. Comedy is so refreshing because it shows women in a new light that's both demented, obnoxious, and delightfully entertaining. One of my favorite comedians out there right now is Amy Schumer.

Her show, Inside Amy Schumer is fan-fucking-tastic! It's like a feminist manifesto surrounded by witty realism and hilariously sarcastic bits. It is so good that your boyfriend has no idea he is watching a feminist show! It's so well written that he is just sitting there laughing while you are dubiously rubbing your paws together like "yessss, this is the secret way feminism will become mainstream…and they don't even know it! MU HA HA HA". I feel like the world is actually a better place because this show exists. Schumer takes real world problems like body image, rape culture, and sexual harassment and puts an approachable and thoughtful spin on it without taking herself too seriously. She is totally brilliant and that is why she is our bad ass bitch of the week!
