While polls appear to show the candidates in a dead heat, one thing's never been more certain: Women could very well determine the election's outcome. Women who are concerned about various issues -- mainly, the economy and jobs, but also how each candidate and their party feel about our individual rights. As we've seen over the past couple of years, the Republican party has touted "hands-off" government, but seem to be more interested than ever in creating stifling regulations around rape, abortion, and various other issues related to women's reproductive freedoms.
And some women -- like Lena Dunham (Girls), singer Sia, Mae Whitman (Parenthood), Natasha Lyonne (American Pie), and more -- have had enough. In a new, chillingly amazing PSA, they've banded together to send politicians a message via Lesley Gore's 1963 hit, "You don't own me!" Check it out ...
Wow, right? As Gore mentions, it's so frustrating to think that we're still fighting some of the very same battles she faced when "You Don't Own Me" was a brand-new single. But if we want to speak out against this ongoing fight, protect our reproductive rights, and witness progress, the choice on November 6 is very, very clear.
How awesome is this video!?
