I had never listened to Lesley Gore's 1964 song "You Don't Own Me" and thought of the power of women just saying that phrase together: "YOU. DON'T. OWN. ME." Not to our special someones ... but to our government. Until now! Dayum! Gauntlet thrown!
The ladies behind this magical mash-up of celebrity lady faces did. They were like, "This song is about dating, but also — it's about rights!" (And therefore, it's about VOTING.)
Try not to get choked up when it gets to the part where she says, "I don't tell you what to do." I'm a cheeseball, but I just think of the 50 years that ladies have been fighting for their rights, and I feel the feels. Press "Play" and join me.
