Recently, I wrote a piece on the new wave of post-feminist comedy that is taking over the stand-up circuit. These female comedians operate from a narrative of false gender equality which becomes a double-edged sword. On the one hand, “it’s comedy”, and it can make fun of anything. On the other hand, given the global context we live in today, this kind of comedy can harm the work of other feminists in places where gender equality is not even a subject of discussion.
