Chime for Change co-founders Beyonce Knowles-Carter, Salma Hayek Pinault and Gucci's Creative Director Frida Giannini partnered with some of Hollywood's most powerful stars to advocate women's empowerment in a new PSA.
"I'm telling my daughter every day, 'You know you can be president,'" Beyonce says giddily. "At one year old I'm like, 'You know you can be president.'"
According to their website, Chime for Change "is a community of people working to promote education, health and justice for every girl, every woman, everywhere."
"The most powerful tool a woman can have is her own education," says supporter Zoe Saldana.
"Women have a voice that can't be stopped," adds Jada Pinkett-Smith.
The organization is underwriting a live concert, The Sound of Change Live, on June 1 at Twickenham Stadium in London, featuring Beyonce, Ellie Goulding, Florence + the Machine, John Legend, Rita Ora and more. The event will be broadcast globally to more than one billion people worldwide and all ticket sales (less VAT and service fees) will support projects pursuing change for girls and women.
Katy Perry, Frieda Pinto and Arianna Huffington also appear in the video.
