>>>HEY, EVERYONE.
IT’S ME, SCARLETT.>>AND ME AIDY.
>>AND THIS PAST WEDNESDAY ALL OF THE FEMALE CAST MEMBERS AND
I PROUDLY PARTICIPATED IN A DAY WITHOUT A WOMAN, WHICH MEANS WE
DIDN’T COME INTO WORK AT ALL.>>AND BECAUSE A LOT OF THE
WRITING FOR THIS SHOW IS DONE ON WEDNESDAYS WE WEREN’T ABLE TO
WRITE ANY SKETCHES THIS WEEK, WHICH WAS A LITTLE BIT OF A
BUMMER.>>YES, BUT LUCKILY OUR GOOD
FRIENDS BECK AND KYLE OFFERED TO WRITE SOMETHING FOR US.
NOW, WE HAVEN’T READ IT YET. BUT THEY TOLD US IT FEATURES THE
ENTIRE FEMALE CAST, AND IT INCLUDES AN IMPORTANT
CONVERSATION ABOUT WOMEN’S ISSUES.
>>ANYWAY, WE HOPE YOU ENJOY IT. AND THANK YOU, BECK AND KYLE,
FOR WRITING THIS FOR US. ♪♪♪
>>OH, GOD. I AM SO GLAD THE FOUR OF US
COULD FINALLY GET TOGETHER.>>I KNOW.
IT’S BEEN FOREVER.>>YEAH.
IT’S GOOD TO SEE YOU, ACE AND JAKE.
>>HEY, ACE, WHAT’S WRONG? YOU SEEM LIKE YOU’RE IN A BAD
MOOD.>>I AM, JAKE.
ON THE WAY HERE I SAW A GUY HARASSING A GIRL ON THE STREET.
>>OH, WOW.>>YEAH.
IT JUST MADE ME REALIZE HOW HARD IT MUST BE, TO BE A WOMAN.
WE — YOU KNOW, WE DON’T HAVE TO GO THROUGH THAT AS MEN.
>>NOT TO MENTION THEY’RE PAID LESS THAN US.
>>RIGHT? HAVE YOU EVER SEEN SEXUAL
HARASSMENT LIKE THAT, JAKE?>>YEAH.
I’VE SEEN SOME, TOO, AND I HATE TO SAY IT BUT NOT JUST ON THE
STREET. ONLINE, TOO.
>>IT REALLY JUST MAKES ME SO UPSET TO THINK ABOUT.
>>THE PROBLEM IS HOW WOMEN ARE PORTRAYED IN THE MEDIA.
FROM A YOUNG AGE WOMEN ARE TAUGHT THAT THEIR VALUE IS HOW
THEY LOOK.>>AS A BOY GROWING UP, I NEVER
EXPERIENCED THAT. THAT’S NOT FAIR!
>>THANK YOU FOR SAYING THAT.>>THANK YOU FOR SAYING THAT.
>>YOU’RE WELCOME.>>HEY, ACE, DID YOU KNOW THAT
ONLY 28 OUT OF 100 SENATORS ARE WOMEN?
>>WE HAVE TO CHANGE THAT!>>I MEAN, WHAT DO YOU GIRLS
THINK?>>YEAH?
BECAUSE SO OFTEN WOMEN AREN’T GIVEN A VOICE IN SOCIETY.
>>I MEAN, ALSO, DID YOU KNOW THAT LAST YEAR ONLY 13% OF THE
TOP GROSSING FILMS WERE DIRECTED BY WOMEN?
>>THAT’S BAD. [ TOGETHER ]
>>THANK YOU FOR SAYING THAT.>>YOU’RE WELCOME.
THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS WOMEN HAVE TO PUT UP WITH EVERY DAY
THAT WE’RE NOT EVEN AWARE OF. THEY ARE CALLED MICRO
AGGRESSIONS.>>IS THAT TRUE?
>>IS THAT TRUE?>>YEAH.
>>MAN, I’M SURE EVERY WOMAN IN THIS RESTAURANT HAS A STORY
ABOUT MICRO AGGRESSION.>>I MEAN, LOOK AT THIS TABLE.
PROBABLY EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE GIRLS HAS A STORY TO TELL.
>>YEAH. THEY MUST.
>>IT’S CRAZY TO THINK ABOUT.>>WE KNOW IT’S HARD BEING A
WOMAN. THAT’S WHY WE, ACE AND JAKE,
ARRANGED A SPECIAL MUSICAL PERFORMANCE TO MAKE UP FOR ALL
THE STUFF YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH.>>TAKE IT AWAY, LORDE.
[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>TWO, THREE, FOUR.
