Humor and empowerment go hand in hand.
We don’t always think of internet memes as a force for serious social change. But the humor behind image macros and mashup content can be leveraged in the fight against toxic masculinity—with the right talent, of course.
Julia Hava has amassed a huge following on Instagram (@binchcity) by turning sexist advertising into hilarious commentary on feminism and mental illness.
This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) talk to Hava about the modern feminist conversation happening online, and how memes and humor play an increasingly important role.
Listen to episode 80 of #2G1P right here:
Here’s the video from the Clayman Institute for Gender Research about unconscious bias, which Alli references in the episode.
This episode was co-produced and edited by Sophie Bridges.
