Did you guys see this last week? It came out just before #Sandy hit. Watch if you need some post-storm cheering up because it’s so fun. Lesley Gore, who originally recorded the ’60s hit “You Don’t Own Me,” put together a video featuring the song as lip synched by a bunch of very cool females, including Lena Dunham, Tracee Ellis Ross, Tavi Gevinson and Alexa Chung among many others. Here’s the message according to Gore, who speaks at the end of the video:

Women, let’s rise up. Our vote alone can win this election. A vote for Obama is a vote for your health and your right to choose. It is a vote for equal pay and equal rights. A vote for Obama is a vote for our families. It is a vote to marry who you choose. It’s a vote to start a family when you choose. A vote for Obama says that we won’t stand for violence against women and that rape is rape. Our vote ensures that our daughters will grow up with the same rights that we’ve had. A vote for Obama sends a message: This war on women must end. We will not go backwards.

Baby-girl cheezing at :30 is melting my heart down.to.the.ground! Also, can I just say–I cannot wait to pull the lever for Barack Hussein Obama on Tuesday November 6th, super excited ’bout it!
