As the midterm elections approach, celebrities are using their platforms to encourage people to head to the polls.

Jodie Foster directed the “Because It Matters” PSA, produced by Mike Bloomberg and RadicalMedia, which features an all-female celebrity line up. Cher, Laverne Cox, Minnie Driver, Jodie Foster, Bethenny Frankel, Ellen Pompeo, Lily Tomlin, Constance Wu and more all urge women to vote if they care about issues such as healthcare, immigration, gun reform, women’s rights and more.

Foster said in a statement: “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. I’m proud to partner with RadicalMedia and Mike Bloomberg on creating a campaign that encourages all Americans to use their voice and vote. Women across the country have concerns and strong points of view and they can make a difference by going to the polls on November 6th. 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.”
