"May the universe lighten the burden from your soul."

Kesha is the latest high-profile voice joining the chorus of sexual assault survivors bringing the magnitude of the problem to light through the viral #MeToo movement.

“I support the tremendous amount of women who are coming forward to tell their stories of harassment and abuse,” she tweeted.

In a second tweet, she wrote, “It takes strength and courage. Bravo! May the universe lighten the burden from your soul.”

The “Praying” singer has been embroiled in a long public battle with producer Dr. Luke, who she has accused of sexual assault and battery, gender violence, emotional abuse and more.  

 

Alyssa Milano has been credited with spurring the current internet phenomenon of the #MeToo movement when she asked survivors to share their stories in the wake of the revelations about Harvey Weinstein.

As The Washington Post reports, the movement was originally founded in 2006 by Tarana Burke, who’s in the middle of a documentary called Me Too.
