Unbelievable feats humanity will accomplish before giving women equal pay
Set your calendar reminders and your time-travel clocks, gals!
Let's take a look at the link between technology and women's rights, shall we?
We human beings have figured out a way to print stuff — from guns to prosthetic limbs, art, and jewelry, just to name a few. Seriously! We're so smart!
Scientists even predict that within 10 years, they'll be able to 3D-print a functioning human heart.
But we still haven't figured out equal rights? Is that possible?
As Kristen Schaal explains in the "The Daily Show" clip below, we're not using our genius brains to their full potential. That is, using them to make society more fair.
We still won't have closed the pay gap for women, where a lady earns less than a dude for doing the exact same work, until (and this is an estimate, of course) the year 2058.
Yep. That means that we'll have a lot of people walking around with insta-printed hearts but unequal lives.
If we're going to have flying cars in 2017...
...and put a person on Mars by 2030...
...we can definitely put our smarty brains together and figure out this whole a-dollar-for-him-is-the-same-as-a-dollar-for-her thing before 2058!
If we can basically develop a vending machine for human organs, we can crack this equality thing.
I totally believe in us.
So how about we try using our powers for equality so that we don't have a lotta unequal people walking around with printed hearts?
I'll print that!
