While the War on Women rages on, some of our favorite ladies are using comedy to dismantle the head-scratching logic that's so prevalent in our government, legislation, workplaces and on college campuses. Amy Schumer, Kristen Schaal and Sarah Silverman serve up some of the year's best and much-needed comedy:
