Lena Dunham and the rest of the “Girls”; cast has banded together to create a new video, in which they deliver a powerful message about sexual assault.
“I dedicate this to the brave survivor in the Stanford case who has given so much to change the conversation,”; writes Dunham on Twitter, where she posted the video in which she, Zosia Mamet, Allison Williams and Jemima Kirke speak out about the realities women face.
Dunham and her cast-mates are armed with some powerful statistic from the Centres for Disease Control: one in five women will be sexually assaulted at some point in her life, and in 80 per cent of those attacks, the perpetrator will be somebody the woman already knows.
“This isn’t a secret,”; says Dunham, with Williams adding: “It’s reality.”;
“So why,”; asks Mamet, “is our default reaction as a society to disbelieve?”; Watch:
