It was bound to happen: Funny or Die has just given us the first official #MeToo board game. In a sketch created and filmed for the site, Evan Rachel Wood plays "Guess Who: The #MeToo Edition." (For the youngsters in the back: "Guess Who" is a board game wherein two players try to guess the person on the other player's board.) For this edition, Wood and her opponent Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) play with men accused of sexual misconduct.
"Is your person a man?" Wood asks.
"You're a woman," Tran says, "you don't have a choice!" Woof.
The sketch eventually reveals itself to be a witty advert for Rise, a civil rights nonprofit that advocates for the rights of sexual assault survivors. Sexual assault isn't a game, even though it's very easy to map it on one. (This is a popular Saturday Night Live sketch format: combine something serious with a children's game, and voila! You have a sketch.)
Wood is already a vocal advocate of survivors of sexaul assault. At the 2018 Golden Globe ceremony, Wood joined her fellow actresses in wearing black, and shared a strategy for calling out predators during the ceremony.
"If you see a predator but don't feel you can say anything publicly, gather a handful of people and make a circle around them. The room will know," she wrote in a Tweet. "You also do not have to be in the circle so that it remains anonymous. Brothers and sisters can circle in solidarity."
Watch the full sketch, below.
