A whole host of famous ladies are encouraging you to get out there and vote on November 4. Led by Joan Jett in a public service announcement for The Department of Peace, and lip-synching the words to her hit “Bad Reputation,” you can spot Cass McCombs, Eleanor Friedberger, Carrie Brownstein, Alexis Krauss and Sia. The musicians are joined by Jemima Kirke of Girls, Rookie’s Tavi Gevinson, and Max Greenfield from New Girl, amongst others. (Lesley Gore appears as well; she previously joined the Department of Peace for a PSA that used her song, “You Don’t Own Me.”)

They want to remind you that in 2013, “there were more laws passed to limit women’s reproductive rights than the entire previous decade.”

Jett appears again at the end of the video to drive home the point of its message. She states, “If you care about the right to control our own bodies, and our own paychecks, then get yourself out to the polls this November 4 and vote. And bring your friends.”

You’re also encouraged to visit Lady Parts Justice. It will help educate you about individual state laws that attempt to take away women’s rights.
