The Girls TV series combats a number of serious topics in its comedic plot, many of which surround the topic of female rights -- which the cast often speaks out for personally.

With a new PSA that was made in collaboration with NowThis News, Lena Dunham and the rest of the cast explain the disturbing frequency that sexual assaults happen and the need to believe victims rather than to shame them. It's reported that the short video was made in dedication to the victim of the Stanford case, whose heartbreaking letter regarding her assault and its aftermath went viral. Lena Dunham acknowledged the impact of this with a Tweet that promoted the PSA, as well as its content. The cast of the Girls TV series explain how everyone can help to create a safer environment for victims to come forward, as well as the importance of doing so.
