Actress Scarlett Johansson has thrown her support behind organisers at women's group Planned Parenthood by designing a T-shirt for one of their fundraising campaigns.

The Avengers star was eager to work with Planned Parenthood Action Fund's Women are Watching campaign after getting upset over laws passed in U.S. earlier this year (14) that appeared to restrict women's access to birth control.

In an email for the campaign, she writes, "When I heard that some politicians were cheering the Supreme Court's decision to give bosses the right to interfere in our access to birth control, I thought I had woken up in another decade. Like many of my friends, I was appalled by the thought of men taking away women's ability to make our own personal health care decisions.

"That's when I knew I couldn't sit on the sidelines and why I'm proud to support Planned Parenthood Action Fund's Women are Watching campaign to ensure that young women know the high stakes for women's health and rights this November.

"Women are watching, and we will fight for candidates who will ensure that birth control is affordable and who will protect access to safe and legal abortion. Women will be the key to the elections this November and it's more important than ever that young women register to vote and vote for the candidate that will stand up and fight for them."

The shirts, which read 'Hey Politicians! The 1950s called...they want their sexism back!', are available for sale online.

In September (14), organisers will release a T-shirt created by Gabrielle Union and in October (14), Natasha Lyonne and Selenis Leyva will design a shirt for the cause.
