“TILL IT HAPPENS TO YOU” Lady Gaga
One in every five college women will be sexually assaulted this year in the U.S. (www.itsonus.org) Think about that statistic, 20% of our young women each year. Lady Gaga makes her triumphant return with a deeply serious and timely message song about the epidemic of a date rape culture permeating our college campuses. The graphic PSA/music video shows mixing alcohol, hormones, and a culture that promotes a lack of respect for each other has created an epidemic of violence that needs to stop. Lady Gaga’s promotional clip was written by multi-Grammy winner, Diane Warren, and featured on the soundtrack for the highly rated documentary, The Hunting Ground, which premiered in February 2015. Gaga said, “We have a responsibility to the young men and women of this country to stand up against sexual violence everywhere.” College superintendents MUST change the campus atmosphere and enforce a stricter school code to stop this madness.
