Lady Gaga Releases Music Video Addressing Sexual Assault

Author’s Note: This article discusses sexual assault.

Lady Gaga recently released a new music video for her song “Til it Happens to You.” The powerful video speaks out about sexual assault and the reality that one in five college women will experience sexual assault during their collegiate years.

The video follows the stories of three women and shows their pain, hurt, and insecurity. By reaching out to loved ones, the survivors soon find solace. In their journey of overcoming, words like “I am worthless” turn into “I am worthy.”

A portion of proceeds from this video will go to organizations working to combat sexual assault. If you or anyone you know is struggling with a sexual assault, you can call the National Sexual Assault Hotline at 1-800-656-HOPE.
