Demi Lovato is begging women to speak up, even when it’s “comfortable,” following a judge ruling Kesha must still work with Dr. Luke after accusing the producer of rape. Early Sunday morning, Lovato tweeted a series of messages that both obliquely supported Kesha, as well as outlined her views on “women empowerment.”

Referencing the Kesha trial, Lovato began by stating it’s “Frustrating to see women come forward with their past only to be shot down, not believed & disrespected for their bravery in taking action.” That was followed up by a second tweet that read, “Happens way too often. I’m ready for women to be taken just as seriously as men.” She added, “Someone tell me why anyone would ever feel brave enough to come forward if they are most likely to be ignored or called a liar?”

As Gossip Cop reported, Kesha sought to be released from her deal with Dr. Luke’s label at Sony amid allegations that the record producer sexually assaulted her, a claim he vehemently denies. On Friday, Kesha’s motion was denied, resulting in the singer leaving court in tears and receiving support from a slew of celebrities, including Lovato, who tweeted, “#FreeKesha. This is only gonna make you stronger, you brave and beautiful girl. Prayers are with you.”

Less that two days later, though, the case was still on Lovato’s mind in the early morning hours of Sunday, and prompted her to further tweet, “I’m also ready for self-proclaimed feminists to start speaking out or taking action for women’s rights.”

She continued with a series of tweet about what “women empowerment” means. “Women empowerment is speaking up for other women even when it’s something uncomfortable to speak up about,” began Lovato, who further noted, “Women empowerment is using your voice to help the voiceless women be heard.” She added, “Women empowerment is taking action now, not when it’s convenient.” Lovato went on to state, “Women empowerment is leading other women to make actual changes in our society.” She ended her plea, “Women empowerment is tweeting at 2:30 am knowing the consequences of these tweets and not giving a single [expletive,].”
