For many women, “joking around” is something we do when we’re uncomfortable. Humor is a way to deflect an unwanted sexual advance, brush off a sexist comment, or cope with anything else that makes us cringe. But when we wield humor intentionally and unapologetically, it can be much more than a defense mechanism—it can be a tool to take back power. For this episode of Tilted, we asked two outstanding women in comedy—Lauren Lapkus and Cameron Esposito—to tell us all about how they’re doing that, and how we can do it, too.
For an upcoming episode of season 2, we want to hear from YOU; how are you planning to make the world a little less tilted in 2021? Give us a call at (855)-4-TILTED, that’s (855)-484-5833, and leave a 30-second voice mail telling us how you plan to make the world a little less tilted in 2021. We’ll share the messages that inspire us most — and we might even follow up with you to learn more. Excited to hear from you!
