TV star Alexis Bledel says her passionate belief in women’s rights is motivating her to get out and vote on Election Day this year.
She’s speaking out on TakePart.com as part of the “Why I Vote” video series and says "I guess I just think about my mother and wanting her to make choices when she gets older that are fair and good choices for her health as well as the younger people in my family… I want them to be able to make choices that they feel are right for them and they can feel proud of. "
