Taylor Swift Is A Time Person Of The Year

Taylor Swift Is A Time Person Of The Year

The men and women who broke their silence on sexual harassment are named Time magazine's Person of the Year for 2017.

Almost four months after Taylor Swift won her sexual assault case against a Denver radio host, the pop star is speaking out about her "demoralizing" days in court. In a rare interview, Swift opened up about her #MeToo moment: meeting DJ David Mueller, whom she alleges groped her during a backstage photo-op in 2013. Swift privately reported the incident to the station at which Mueller worked, and he was sacked. Taylor powerfully countersued, testified that Mueller did assault her and claimed he should be held accountable "to serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts". The pop star said she chatted with Kesha, a musician who's had a long legal battle with alleged abuser Dr. Luke, about her situation, and it "really helped to talk to someone who had been through the demoralizing court process", Swift said. My mom was so upset after her cross-examination, she was physically too ill to come to court the day I was on the stand.

Taylor's frank testimony made headlines.

The 27-year-old singer got heaps of social media praise after she took the stand, hitting back at Mueller's lawyer with fiery responses like, "I am not going to allow your client to make me feel like it is any way my fault because it isn't" and "I'm critical of your client sticking his hand under my skirt and grabbing my ass".

The police rushed to the scene at about 10.30 am on Wednesday, when they received the call about the body in the auto . Nawab discovered Khan's body, upright on the driver's seat in the unlocked auto with a bullet wound on his temple.

A sketch of Swift is shown as she appeared in court Friday, August 11. Yet it turns out that - in the most painful and personal ways - movie stars are more like you and me than we ever knew. "In that moment, I chose to forgo any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened".

Now, please allow me to put in my own two cents for just a moment. Why should I be polite? Swift filed a countersuit a month later for sexual assault and battery and sought a symbolic $1. "I have real doubts about whether we'd be going through this if Hillary Clinton had won, because I think that President Trump's election in many ways was a setback for women", said Megyn Kelly, the Fox News host who was a favorite target of Trump's misogyny during the election.

And, by the way, that $1 that the court awarded Swift in her case? The court ultimately sided with Swift in the case, and ordered Mueller to pay her the symbolic dollar. Just two of the faces that represent the many women who have come forward to accuse powerful men of sexual harassment and assault and it comes on the National day of remembrance and action on violence against women.
