The campaign released a video called "#ThisIsWhatMyRevolutionLooksLike" that features actresses including Lena Dunham, Taylor Schilling, Uzo Aduba, Lea DeLaria, Natasha Lyonne, Hill Harper and Rosie Perez.

"Lotta talk about revolution these days," Aduba says at the beginning of the video.

"Well, this is what my revolution looks like," Dunham adds.

She says her revolution looks like a "woman finally having a seat at the table — at the head of the table."
 
The video said that women made up 53 percent of all voters in the last national elections but only account for 19.4 percent of Congress.
 
People in the video call it "unacceptable" that women make up such a large voting bloc but are so underrepresented in the country's leadership.
 
Those in the video call for the country to pass laws providing paid family leave and protecting abortion rights. They also push for equal pay for men and women.
 
"Vote some women into office," Dunham says.
 
"Join our revolution," Aduba says. "It's finally our time."
 
Dunham said she took part in the video because she wants to elect a woman president.

“This is the most essential election of our lifetime, and I believe that electing more women is a true revolutionary action," Dunham said in a statement.

"If you believe in equality for women, LGTBQ, people of color and immigrants then there is only one choice this November — Hillary Clinton.”
 
Laura Dawn, director and writer of the video and co-founder of Humanity for Hillary, said she was "aghast to see decades of old false attacks on Hillary Clinton echoed by young progressives."
 
"I researched every single attack on the former Secretary [of State], and emerged more confident than ever that she absolutely deserves to be the first woman President of this country," she said in a statement.
 
"I believe that Hillary Clinton will be a fantastic president, and electing her is a paradigm shifting act that will foster new levels of women running for office and winning.”
