When it comes to fighting the good fight, Lizz Winstead, "First Lady of Political Satire," wants to make it funny.

In President Donald Trump's America, she's fighting fire with fire.

Just replace "fire" with "increasingly scary restrictions on women's rights," and "fire" with "a very cool kind of comedy activism" and you get a sense of the revolution Winstead is leading.

Best known for co-creating The Daily Show, the comedian, writer and TV personality has channeled her considerable energy into Lady Parts Justice League. It's the nonprofit arm of the group she founded in 2012 to keep women informed on news that too often gets quietly brushed away—namely, new rules and laws that make it increasingly difficult for women to find female-specific healthcare.
