If you'd like to help Joss and his allies fight for real equality in a small way, you could Like Equality Now on Facebook. And maybe share this?


ORIGINAL: By Joss Whedon for Equality Now. To read a full transcript, click here.

You can start this video from the beginning to hear Meryl Streep's wonderful intro speech. Also, fellow curator Rebecca Eisenberg, out of the kindness of her giant feminist heart, gave me this video to write up. So you should also Like her on Facebook because she's funny and smart and talented and a way gooder writer than me.

Love the story?
