Sarah recently stirred up some controversy with her new video for The National Women’s Law Center’s “Equal Payback Project,” which shows Sarah going to drastic measures to avoid the wage gap. Watch the video below!

“If I literally got a sex change I would indeed find the work force far less friendly. The video wasn’t transphobic it was transignorant – never crossed my mind. But to my *unintentional* credit- people are talking about it & so begins awareness. Please don’t punish this cause because of my video. I certainly don’t only fight for causes that concern or benefit me and I expect the same of the vital trans community,” Sarah tweeted about the video.
