In the wake of the #MeToo movement, music has been a vessel of outreach and support for many. Feminist trio Rosie & The Riveters penned an open message in support of women who have experienced sexual assault with their latest track “I Believe You,” and the video premieres exclusively on Billboard below.
The song comes from their sophomore album, Ms. Behave -- due April 6 -- a compilation of female-empowering anthems of women’s stories in a man’s world. It reiterates respect and empowerment, and they've definitely got a lot to say.
“We wrote ‘I Believe You’ because we were nauseated by the results of various sexual assault trials that resulted in minimal or no sentences for the perpetrators,” Rosie & The Riveters said. “The way that survivors were torn apart during trials and in the media reminded us why so many women stay silent.”
