'Girls' cast delivers powerful message of support for sexual abuse victims

The cast members of Girls have joined forces to deliver a powerful message of support for sexual abuse victims. Lena Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet filmed the important PSA in honour of the extraordinarily brave victim in the Stanford abuse case, who has become a voice for many after penning a heartbreaking impact statement following her abuser Brock Turner's light sentencing.

"I dedicate this to the brave survivor in the Stanford case who has given so much to change the conversation," wrote Lena on Twitter, alongside a link to the informative video.

The actresses stand together as they share startling facts on the prevalence of violence against women. "One in five women will be sexually assaulted during her lifetime," notes Zosia, to which Allison adds, "In 80 percent of those cases, the attacks are perpetrated by someone they already know."

"Support. Listen. Take action," says Allison, who along with her castmates urge viewers to join them in their pledge to help victims by providing unconditional love and support.

The Girls cast join a list of other celebrities who have spoken out in support of the Stanford rape victim. Oscar-winner Brie Larson tweeted, "Every inch of this case is severely disappointing. None of this is the survivors fault. NONE. ZERO," while Zoe Kazan revealed that her boyfriend Paul Dano was so impacted by the victim's words he is going to share it with all of the men on the set of his movie.
