Atlanta couple Bria Airb and Chrissy Chambers hit YouTube this past summer with humorous, equality-themed duets. Today, their videos collectively boast over 325,000 views –and with good reason. Tackling hot-button themes like Chick-Fil-A's anti-gay stance and the Republican Party's rape gaffes, they'll manage to make any feminist chuckle (instead of pulling out her hair).
