There are many good people, who want to help others. Joe Biden and Lady Gaga are one of them. They’re trying to help every woman who was abused. “Women who are abused end up having long-term physical and physiological problems,” Biden said on Monday at Glamour’s Women of the Year Summit. “I’m working with Lady Gaga now… we want to set up trauma centers where women can go to get the long-term help they need to deal with these crises.”
Earlier this year, Biden and Gaga collaborated on the “It’s On Us” campaign, which was originally established in 2014 under the Obama administration to fight sexual assault on college campuses. The pair encouraged viewers to intervene in situations where consent isn’t given, and Gaga opened up about the “psychological, physical, mental” effects of her trauma.
The Joanne singer’s long been an advocate for sexual assault survivors, having previously released her power-ballad “Til It Happens To You” for the documentary The Hunting Ground. Co-written with hitmaker Diane Warren, the track reflected on Gaga’s personal experience, and donated a portion of its proceeds to organizations that support sexual abuse survivors. Biden first met Gaga when he introduced her powerful performance of the song at the 2016 Oscars, sparking a partnership that arrives at an important, watershed moment for sexual assault in the public conscious.
