For today's post, we'd like to share Lady Gaga's "Til It Happens to You." The song has received worldwide recognition, and has reached millions of listeners, most notably in her moving performance at the Oscars. The song was also featured in the 2015 documentary, The Hunting Ground, which follows survivors of rape on college campuses, and the ways in which university administration handles, or fails to handle, the reporting and investigative processes.
Awards and accolades aside, however, the song marks an important step towards breaking the stigma and allowing an opportunity for survivors to speak up and speak out against sexual assault. We believe that survivor empowerment, particularly through thoughtful discourse, is a crucial step towards progress.
