This PSA, which I just came across of over at Bitch Media is awesome. The commercial begins with Batman and Robin tied up in an abandoned warehouse with a bomb. Batgirl enters heroically, breaking the glass windows. The conversation is feminist and brilliant. Robin: "Holy breaking-and-entering, it's Batgirl!" Batman: "Quick Batgirl! Untie us before it's too late!" Batgirl: "It's already too late. I've worked for you a long time, and I get paid less than Robin." Robin: "Holy discontent!" Batgirl: "Same job, same employer mean equal pay for men and women." Batman: "No time for jokes, Batgirl." Batgirl: "It's no joke, it's the Federal Equal Pay Law." Robin: "Holy act of Congress!" Batman: "Can we talk about this later?"
