Queen Latifah is partnering with Lifetime Television to talk to women voters across the U.S.
Every Woman Counts is the only public service campaign dedicated to encouraging women to speak out on the issues they care about most, vote and run for office.
Kicking off in January and airing on Lifetime until Election Day on November 4, Queen Latifah is recording the spots during her “The Trav’lin’ Light Concert Tour” and asking women to complete the sentence, “If I Were President, I would ….” Designed to draw attention to issues of significance to women, that are often lost in the frenzy of campaign coverage, the spots will also air as broadband vignettes on myLifetime.com.
Along with the interviews conducted by Queen Latifah, Lifetime will interview celebrities, political candidates, thought leaders, viewers and visitors at myLifetime.com with the goal of collecting one million responses on-camera, online and on postcards at grassroots events throughout the year. The answers will be shared with the presidential candidates, nonprofit organizations, and the media, and ultimately will be delivered to the newly elected leaders in the White House and the Capitol in January 2009.
