President Obama late Sunday used a message broadcast during the Grammy Awards to promote a campaign to end sexual assault.
“Tonight we celebrate artists whose music and message helps shape our culture,” Obama said. “Together, we can change our culture for the better by ending violence against women and girls.”
Obama cited statistics that nearly one in five women in America has been a victim of rape or attempted rape. More than one in four women has experienced some form of domestic violence, he added.
“It’s not OK. It has to stop,” the president said.
