In addition to being a playwright, poet and actor, Sarah Jones is also suing the Federal Communications Commission and its chairman Michael Powell. She is challenging a ruling that one of her works is "indecent."

The work is called 'Your Revolution' and protests the degrading treatment of women in popular culture and particularly in hip hop. It is a loose reworking of Gil Scott-Heron’s classic poem, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised."
