OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) IGNITE and creative agency Pereira O’Dell, in collaboration with Heavy Duty Projects and MediaMonks, announce the launch of #WomenInTheHouse, a social action that celebrates the record number of women in office with the objective of encouraging young women to pursue political careers.

“As our country pushes towards a future of equal representation, we saw the opportunity to tap into the influential and powerful market of young women to show them, no matter their affiliation, they have what it takes to use their voice as elected leaders to make a difference in not only America, but the world,” said Dr. Anne Moses, IGNITE's Founder & President.

Building off the momentum of this congressional session, where a record number of congresswomen are serving in the House of Representatives, IGNITE has created an interactive website that continues the positive momentum. Using a quiz, users can uncover similarities between themselves and current female members of the House of Representatives. This feature helps more women see the similarities between themselves and elected officials.

Visitors of the #WomenInTheHouse website also can see a live feed of aggregated posts using the hashtag, accelerating visibility.

To help drive young women to the campaign site, IGNITE with partners Media Monks and Heavy Duty Projects have produced a POP animation music video featuring an original and exclusive song, aptly titled #WomenInTheHouse, by up-and-coming artists Victoria Canal and Blimes.

“As music is a uniting factor for all people, no matter their background, race, or political stance,” said PJ Pereira, Creative Chairman of Pereira O’Dell. “The original lyrics created for #WomenInTheHouse serve as an anthem to unite and empower young women nationwide celebrate our current successes and drive us into a future of equal representation.”

The music video showcases animated versions of the artists alternating with a diverse portrait of women singing the song.

"This is both a celebration and a call to action, a rousing mix of music, animation and digital distribution to put forward a positive message everyone can get behind. It's been great to work with such amazing partners to get this message out the door, and a great way for our team to show their support," adds Wesley ter Haar, COO of MediaMonks.
