Lady Gaga is shedding light on the issue of campus sexual assault, which has been getting more attention over the past few years. I’m glad people are talking about this problem: it’s more prevalent than people realize. Gaga brings attention to the issue with her new video, ‘Til It Happens To You.’
Proceeds from the song will go to a good cause, too.
A portion of proceeds from the sale of the song will be donated to organizations helping survivors of sexual assault.
What a great thing to do!
The song is for the movie ‘The Hunting Ground.’ The video ‘Til It Happens To You’ does have some disturbing scenes, so trigger warnings certainly apply. There is no glorification of sexual assault here: Gaga didn’t shy away from the horror of it, but this is the type of thing that college kids are likely to pay attention to. Hopefully the message gets through. This is a great way to get discussion going.
