The ad, which was directed by Jodie Foster, encourages women to vote during the midterm elections on Nov. 6.
A star-studded group of female entertainers — including Cher, Lily Tomlin, Ellen Pompeo and Olivia Munn — are urging other women to vote in next week’s midterm elections as part of a Jodie Foster – directed PSA.
The ad, titled Because it Matters, names a number of hot-button issues on their minds, including equal pay, immigration reform and gun control and encourages women to vote during the midterm elections on Nov. 6.
“If somebody asked you ‘What do you care about?,’ what would you say?” actress Tea Leoni asks the camera in the video.
Foster said in a statement announcing the ad’s release.
“Women’s voices are being listened to in a way that they haven’t been before. And it’s not just women candidates. It’s women voters and women activists. We hope that this campaign, featuring familiar faces in the entertainment industry, will inspire others to share their views and more importantly take action on Election Day. It really matters.”
