Kesha is a singer-songwriter who faced a court trial that payed a huge toll on the future of her career. Last Friday, she lost a court battle against her producer Dr.Luke and Sony on alleged rape charges. Dr.Luke filed counter suit, and stating that Kesha made up the stories to get an "exclusive contract" with him.
This is another example of how women in society are seen as inferior to men. For example, singer-songwriter Chris Brown has been charged with two felonies after beating singer-songwriter Rihanna in 2009 and is still able to hold a career, while Kesha is being raped and is told that she is lying about it and is forced to still produce music with the rapist, Dr.Luke.
In today's society, women are encouraged to speak up about situations like Kesha's, only to be shot down and given blame for the whole thing. Affinity Magazine calls it "A ruling built on victim blaming".
The judge claims that "There has been no showing of irreparable harm, she's being given opportunity to record."
Today, the internet is full of support for the artisit by spreading hashtags such as #FreeKesha and #SonySupportsRape.
