Steve Carell, Daniel Craig, Seth Meyers, and Others Star in Must-Watch Sexual Assault PSA

Empowering news for women everywhere: The White House is taking a strong stand against sexual assault on college campuses—and everywhere else—and now Hollywood's in on it, too. Their official campaign, 1 is 2 Many, recently released a new, star-studded PSA on campus sexual assault that addresses men directly and aims to raise awareness about consent, preventing assault, speaking up, and issues of victim-blaming.

The PSA features not only President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, but also screen stars Steve Carell, Daniel Craig, Seth Meyers, Benicio Del Toro, and Dulé Hill. It's the latest move on the White House's part to lower the alarming statistics on sexual assault—and to save women and help survivors in the process. The PSA comes hot on the heels of recently released guidelines to combat sexual assault on college campuses, where one in five young women will become a victim of sexual assault, according to 1 is 2 Many and the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault.

The message of the PSA is simple: Men need to play an active role in preventing rape, both on their part and on the part of others around them. Check out the PSA for yourself:
