As we previously announced. Scarlett attended yesterday to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte (North Carolina). You can watch the video of her speech clicking here and here you have some extracts:

“I speak to you not as a representative of young Hollywood, but as a representative of the many millions of young Americans, particularly young women, who depend on public and nonprofit programs to help them survive.”

Johansson, dressed in rust-colored pants, stilettos, a tan blazer and a shirt featuring an American flag, spoke of growing up in a struggling middle-class family in New York City and living in a housing development for lower-middle-class families. Her family depended on benefits for school transport and food, she said, and some of her friends still depend on Planned Parenthood and Medicaid.

“That’s why I’m here today, to use whatever attention I’m fortunate enough to receive to shed the spotlight on what’s at stake for all of us.”

“I’m not going to tell you who to vote for,” she said. “I’m here to ask you to commit to vote.”
