Lena Dunham has become the latest celeb to join the girl gang standing up in support of Kesha, after publishing a powerful feminist essay about the case that will make you wanna kick some ass.

Taking to her website to express her anger, Lena sees the whole thing as way more than just a music legal battle, explaining in her writing how Kesha's case is a prime example of the "systemic misogyny of the entertainment industry."

As well as voicing her own outrage regarding the controversial verdict for Kesha's own personal case, Lena says that the whole thing shows parallels to domestic abuse if you look at the bigger picture surrounding Kesha's treatment.

"What's happening to Kesha highlights the way that the American legal system continues to hurt women by failing to protect them from the men they identify as their abusers," she says in a post on Lenny Letter

She explains how "legal ties can make it impossible for a woman to escape her abuser", and makes a pretty cutting comment aimed at Sony which will definitely make you think.

"But what man, what company endeavors to keep a woman saddled with someone who she says has caused her years of trauma, shame, and fear?" Lena says.

"Fighting this fight publicly and in the legal system has already changed the course and tenor of her career forever."

Lena's not the only one feeling the feminism today though, as Demi Lovato has also spoken out to clear up those rather awkward comments she made about Taylor Swift's donation to Kesha's case.

"As most people know, I tend to get fired up about the things I believe in," Demi wrote on Instagram. "And although my heart and intentions are always in the right place, unfortunately sometimes my passion gets the best of me and causes me to say things that I probably shouldn't say."

Moving on to talk about the importance of discussion, Demi said: "Our focus should be on the topic of victims of sexual and physical abuse being afraid to come forward with their stories.

"Ultimately, the message I want people to hear is it's okay to come forward with your abuse and if you do decide to take action, you are not alone."
