The message is clear. You don’t know how it feels until it happens to you. What is she talking about?

She’s talking about rape. Finding a credible statistic on rape is difficult because many of them go unreported. The victims might be ashamed. They may not want to put their business out there. They may not want to be dragged through the legal system of getting checked at the hospital, getting interrogated by police, running through that moment over and over again until they just want to scream.

There are plenty of reasons that a rape victim won’t ask for help. But, the U.S. Department of Justice conducted a National Crime Victimization Survey and concluded that over 290,000 people are victims of rape and sexual assault each year. That actually comes out to 1 victim within every 2 minute time frame.

When Lady Gaga took the stage at the Oscars, her performance brought tears to everyone’s eyes. She has a great voice and it’s a powerful one. More performances like this might bring more victims forward. No longer ashamed. No longer paralyzed by that awful moment. But, ready to step forward and do something about it.
