Adding to media response accompanying the Presidential debate, the You Don't Own Me PSA takes a feminist stance to politics.
Lesley Gore's 1964 anthem of female empowerment 'You Don’t Own Me' is belted by an array of fashion, film and publishing professionals. These ladies have come together to create a message of female empowerment that resonates with the political climate accompanying the American election. This video is the brainchild of Citizen Band’s Sarah Sophie Flicker and filmmaker Maximilla Lukacs, who have made for a video that raises awareness as as women's rights have been a critical topic in this electoral race.
The women in this video hold up signs that read “My body is not a battleground,” and “Get Your Rosaries Off My Ovaries.” With stars like blogger Tavi Gevinson, HBO 'Girls' creator Lena Dunham, style icon Alexa Chung and Lesley Gore herself, the You Don't Own Me PSA makes a powerful statement.
