Transcript: Lady Gaga and Joe Biden set to launch women's trauma centres

Lady Gaga and former U.S.

Vice President Joe Biden are planning to launch trauma centres for female victims of sexual assault.

The 31-year-old pop singer has become a leading campaigner for the It's On Us initiative, which Biden and President Barack Obama set up in 2014 to eradicate sexual assault on U.S. college campuses.

Gaga, who is herself a rape survivor, appeared with Biden at the 2016 Oscars, when he introduced her performance of 'Til It Happens to You', the track which features in 'The Hunting Ground', a documentary highlighting sex crimes on campuses.

More recently, Gaga again teamed up with Biden to release a new video urging men and women to intervene if they see anyone engaging in inappropriate sexual behaviour.

The topic of sexual assault has rarely been out of the headlines since the publication of an explosive report in The New York Times detailed numerous sexual assault allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Weinstein now faces police investigations in the U.K. and U.S. and his outing emboldened both male and female survivors of sexual assault to come forward with accusations.

A host of entertainment industry figures have been accused of inappropriate sexual behaviour ranging from lewd conduct to rape, including Kevin Spacey, comic Louis C.K., and the director Brett Ratner.
