Taylor Swift shares support and advice for fellow victims of sexual assault

TIME didn't pick a person of the year this time around... they picked people who opened the floodgates in America's sexual harassment awakening

"People have been largely very supportive of my story since the trial began in August, but before that, I spent two years reading headlines referring to it as 'The Taylor Swift Butt Grab Case" with internet trolls making a joke about what happened to me, ' she said of the lingering case. He sued Swift for defamation, but Swift countersued and won.

Swift goes on to talk about how Mueller didn't consider "formalities" while grabbing her, so she made a decision to be blunt on the stand, adding, "his lawyer didn't hold back on my mom - why should I be polite?"

In the cover story-and in a separate Q&A with the magazine-Swift speaks candidly about her experience facing down the man who groped her in a courtroom.

Swift also gave her thoughts on the growing "awareness" about sexual assault in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein allegations, and the roadblocks of trauma and fearing of being blamed that continue to make it hard for victims to come forward.

"When I testified, I had already been in court all week and had to watch this man's attorney bully, badger and harass my team including my mother over inane details and ridiculous minutiae, accusing them, and me, of lying", the "Call It What You Want" crooner told TIME. In her first interview since the trial, Swift indicates how much The Silence Breakers have drastically changed the public's perception of sexual assault.

The interview also has Swift sharing advice for anyone who has experienced this kind of abuse: "You could be blamed for the fact that it happened, for reporting it and blamed for how you reacted".

When Swift and Mueller's legal proceedings were in the national spotlight, Tay turned to Kesha - who's now involved her own lengthy legal battle against her former producer, Dr. Luke, whom she alleges sexually assaulted and emotionally abused her - for help.

Taylor Swift performs "Out of the Woods" at the 58th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on February 15, 2016. While Judd and Taylor are both instantly recognizable to most people, and notable for their respective roles this year in combatting sexual abuse in Hollywood and the music industry, the other women might not be as widely known, though their impact is just as profound. "Even though awareness is higher than ever about workplace sexual harassment, there are still so many people who feel victimized, afraid and silenced by their abusers and circumstances". "You might be made to feel like you're overreacting, because society has made this stuff seem so casual". You don't have to like Taylor Swift, but you do need to respect what she did, what that means to women, and that she too has a place in the #MeToo movement.

"When the jury found in my favor, the man who sexually assaulted me was court-ordered to give me a symbolic $1".

"To this day he has not paid me that dollar, and I think that act of defiance is symbolic in itself", Swift told TIME Magazine.
