Adele Just Publicly Offered Her Support To Kesha At The 2016 Brit Awards https://t.co/kftYaPShabhttps://t.co/3wiAv8cBwj — BuzzFeed News (@BuzzFeedNews) February 24, 2016To show support for Kesha, Lena Dunham published an essay discussing the issue and how it is important for more than just those involved with the case. “A huge part of Kesha's argument rests on her lawyer's assertion that Gottwald, potentially enraged by Kesha's sexual-assault allegations, could make efforts to bury her subsequent albums, preventing her from publicizing and therefore profiting from her work,” Dunham said. “This kind of control is a cornerstone of domestic abuse, and it's far too common: according to the National Network to End Domestic Violence, financial abuse is an aspect of approximately 98 percent of abusive relationships .” Dunham has a point, regardless of whether Kesha’s claims are true or not. If a woman is abused, should she keep the issue to herself? What if the abuse happened 10 years ago? Yesterday? Does abuse become irrelevant over time? The answer is no. If you or someone you know has been affected by abuse, please feel free to contact Western’s Consultation and Sexual Assault Support (CASAS) program .
