Jenner teamed up with Rock The Vote and the Independent Journal for the project, which features the star changing her look to represent the evolution of women during the plight for equal voting rights. The model narrates the clip, saying at the start, “Every day we vote, we’re able to express our opinions online with likes and hashtags. But when it comes to the right to vote, it hasn’t always been that easy, especially for women.”
Jenner goes on to tell the story of Susan B. Anthony, and notes, “Because of suffragettes and their battle, gender doesn’t matter, but you vote always can.” She adds at the end, “I’m Kendall Jenner. I’m 19, and I’m here to Rock The Vote.”
