Kesha has penned a heart-warming letter to her fans, thanking them for their support in her ongoing battle against Sony Music Entertainment, but also took the opportunity to draw attention to the larger issue of abuse.
On Monday a judge denied the singer's request to be freed from her contract with Sony, saying she must make six more albums with the company and producer Dr. Luke, real name Lukasz Gottwald, who Kesha alleges physically and sexually abused her.
#FreeKesha trended worldwide following the courts decision. Fans also started a petition asking people to boycott Sony.
Now Kesha has spoken out about the ordeal, taking to Facebook to reach out to her supporters, stating "at this point, this issue is bigger than just about me".
"I think about young girls today – I don't want my future daughter – or your daughter – or any person to be afraid that they will be punished if they speak out about being abused, especially if their abuser is in a position of power," the star wrote.
The singer's sentiments echo those of Lena Dunham who wrote an essay for her online newsletter Lenny this week called 'Why Kesha's Case Is About More Than Kesha'.
"What's happening to Kesha highlights the way that the American legal system continues to hurt women by failing to protect them from the men they identify as their abusers," Dunham wrote.
