Lady Gaga and Joe Biden's powerful message on sexual assault 7 months ago

Lady Gaga and Joe Biden's powerful message on sexual assault

It is safe to say that the last month has been an emotional one.

We have seen people show courage and bravery like never before. Speaking out about personal sexual assault attacks, uniting together and for the first time, standing in unity across the world, stronger and taller than the coward's who commit these horrific acts.

It's been a testing time for sexual assault victims and the general public, and now the latest stars to speak out about sexual harassment and assault are Lady Gaga and Joe Biden. The pair have joined forces to remind people of the 2014 White House initiative "It's On Us" which voices that it is on all of us to come together to stop acts of sexual violence from occurring.

"We want to make it real clear that it's on us, it's on everyone, to intervene and stop abuse when they see it and when they hear about it."

Gaga, who was once a victim of sexual assault continued the message by saying:

"It can be terrifying waking up every day feeling unsafe in your own body. We're here to remind you that it's important to reach out to someone in your life that you can trust and to know that they will be there to help you. There will be someone to listen, because you know what? It's on us."
