With Election Day exactly two weeks away, supporters for each party are ramping up awareness and campaigns in lead-up. In response and opposition to Mitt Romney's policies regarding women's rights, specifically reproductive rights, filmmaker Sarah Sophie Flicker and Lesley Gore, the original artist behind feminist anthem "You Don't Own Me," have assembled a MASSIVE band of women to create a music video PSA around Gore's iconic song. While celebrity and media endorsements alone are no basis for a vote (unless it's for the EMAs *WINK*), we still can't help but sit up and take notice when a lip dub video — politically charged or not — boasts a laundry list of our favorite musicians, actresses, and fashion plates. This one just also happens to be sprinkled with information and messaging relevant to our own lives and rights.
