Sex trafficking. Domestic violence. Teen prostitution. Rape as a tool of war. While these issues affect both genders, young girls and women in general suffer at a disproportionate rate. Across the globe, our collective inaction makes this seem acceptable. Our silence is compliance. I want to build a world where no girl or woman has to suffer in silence for any reason. In the 20 countries I have visited and even in the United States where I reside, I will do everything in my power to ensure that we end the silence to this crisis. That is why I chose this shirt, which I wear most times when I'm performing or speaking about this issue. Peace and freedom ARE possible and I am going to do my best to make this a reality for everyone on this planet.
