7. Amy Schumer – GC4W Top 100 Women in the World.
“The moments that make life worth living are when things are at their worst and you find a way to laugh.”~ Amy Schumer, Comedian
Summary: Amy Schumer is unapologetic about what she does, what she says, and what she looks like. Like many outspoken women, she’s consistently trolled by those who would love to shut her up. But she will not be silenced. Famous for her candid comments, she artfully uses the medium of comedy to address topics such as body shaming and gun violence. Her female supporters adore her for this very reason, which makes her all the more powerful. Schumer broke grounds by becoming the first female to make it to the Forbes Highest-Paid Comedian List, and she was also recently listed as one of TIME’s 100 most influential people.
Industry: Comedy & Activism
Q: What has made you the proudest? on instyle.com
A: That I can have this movie come out or that I can host Saturday Night Live and get to experience all of it with the people I really love. Because it seems like it could be so lonely. Why do any of this if you don’t have your people?
