In the mood for some sweet satire?

For all those requiring a daily dose of subversive humour, please check out Sarah Haskin's hilarious, sarcastic, and oh-so-feminist videos on Current TV. These short video segments are called "Target Women" and roundly mock advertiser's ideas of what makes a good commerical.

Haskins graduated Harvard with a major in American History and Literature, and is a self-proclaimed feminist, stating:
"Yes, I’m a feminist. It is an extension of my lifelong war against pantyhose. To me it means that as women we are individuals before we are gendered people, and that we’re not defined by our gender except in the ways we chose to appropriate that definition. The core issue 'how do I fight bias against me because of my gender' is still there, but has gotten more complicated and wrapped into all kinds of identity issues about how you present yourself as a woman. I pretty much think it's your choice. And fuck pantyhose."

Rock on, Sarah!
