Indeed, Jon Stewart may be one of the first men in the news (albeit the fake news) who so firmly and consistently sided with the ladies -- come to think of it, he's one of the ONLY men in the media to cover women's rights issues the way they deserve to be covered: with blistering humor and whip-smart observations. Plus, he's hired some of the funniest women in the biz to help out: Kristen Schaal, Samantha Bee, Jessica Williams.

Want to take a stroll down the Feminist Jon Stewart Hall of Fame with us? Here are 5 of our all-time favorite clips: 

1. "The War on Ballsacks"

Remember the whole "manspreading" controversy? What other man but Stewart would admit that "one regular subway seat does grant you a good amount of ball space"? (Featuring some stellar work from Schaal, too.)

2. "The Battle for the War on Women"

The only way to get FOX News types to understand a theoretical "war on women"? By comparing it to the "War on Christmas," of course.

3. "The Punanny State"

Religious leaders who don't think contraception should be covered by insurance = "Sausagefest."

4. "Brave New Girl"

Leave it to Stewart to make an observation about Caitlyn Jenner that no one else would: "Caitlyn, when you were a man we could talk about your athleticism, your business acumen. But now you're a woman. Your looks are pretty much the only thing we really care about."

5. "The Broads Must Be Crazy"

Female politicians aren't the only ones prone to "emotional outbursts" -- as Stewart so brilliantly illustrates in this segment.

Oh Jon, do you really have to go??
