Emily Blue: Singing to Combat Rape Culture and Gendered Violence

"Due to personal experience and prevalence of rape culture, Emily Blue’s first single “No Pain” off her LP Another Angry Woman explores the themes of rape culture, gendered violence, and womanhood through a somber, sobering melody highlighting the voices of the often silenced victims of sexual assault and abuse. Blue, a sexual assault survivor, is releasing the “No Pain” video and the Another Angry Woman album to help the Rape Advocacy, Counseling, and Education Services (R.A.C.E.S.), one of many social services organizations suffering due to the budget crises in Illinois. Since the 1970’s, R.A.C.E.S has offered a 24-hour hotline and counseling services for victims of rape, and money received from Another Angry Woman will be donated to R.A.C.E.S. through a Kickstarter so that sexual assault and abuse victims continue to be empowered to break the silence as they do in Blue’s “No Pain” video.  "
