Fifty years ago, Lesley Gore released “You Don’t Own Me,” a feminist anthem that includes lines like, “don’t tell me what to do, don’t tell me what to say.” Now, the song is being re-purposed for a PSA urging women to vote in the midterm elections.
The PSA, which begins with an introduction by Gore herself, features dozens of women—including famous feminists like Lena Dunham, Natasha Lyonne, and Tracee Ellis Ross—ip-syncing to “You Don’t Own Me.”
The video ends with Gore urging women to head to the polls this Nov. 4. “Yes, ladies, we’ve got to come together, get out there and vote, and protect our bodies,” Gore says. “They’re ours.”
