Halsey read a searingly powerful poem at New York's 2018 Women's March demonstration at the weekend.
The event was international in scope, with women leading marches in cities across the globe to support women's rights and bring attention to the sheer scale of physical and sexual abuse.
Halsey attended the New York demonstration, and agreed to read a poem detailing her experiences.
Telling the crowd that she hopes President Trump reads it, the searingly powerful work opens with sexual assault at the age of eight before describing being forced into sex by a boyfriend in 2012, and being "assaulted by a man I trust" only last year.
The impact on the crowd was seismic, and the poem quickly went viral. Halsey shared her reading in full, and thanks those who showed support.
I’m truly humbled and overwhelmed by the support I’ve gotten in the past day. Im comforted and saddened by all who can relate. We are in this together.— h (@halsey) January 22, 2018
