Actresses say it's time for men to 'have it all' in spoof PSA
The women behind The Make It Fair Project—Patricia Noonan, Emily Tarver, and Nadia Quinn—brought together several familiar female faces to make a statement about equality—through song. The satirical number fits into the project’s mission of gender equality in “the stories we tell, the wages we earn, and the future we shape.”
The video, directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, features appearances by Rita Wilson, Mamie Gummer, Annie Parisse, and more than 70 other women, according to the video’s YouTube page. The trio told Jezebel the idea for the video, which highlights statistics regarding the state of the entertainment industry and employment as a whole, came to them during a four-hour brainstorming session in Quinn’s living room. The result? An all-female cast of women who think men deserve the full 100 percent of everything—and won’t relent until it happens.
“Apologize for your ideas, talent, and ambition. Hang back,” Noonan told Jezebel about how other women could contribute to their cause. “Don’t raise your hand, write that screenplay, or ask for that promotion. Don’t tell your stories or run for office. Oh! And don’t support each other.”
