And then there was the massive #MeToo movement spurred by women who came forward in October to allege that Harvey Weinstein and many others committed sexual assault. The announcement was made on the "Today" show. Colorado radio DJ David Mueller sued Swift for $3 million in damages because he was sacked from his radio co-host job in 2013 after she claimed he lifted her skirt and grabbed her derriere while they posed for a photo.
Quotes from Swift's clear-eyed testimony soon hit the Internet, and people were quick to laud her for being so unwavering.
The jury sided with Swift.

Police were concerned about the disappearance because of some troubling conversations Megan had recently had with family members. Detectives said Stack took her 8-year-old daughter Ava with her when she left her home on Cloister Drive at 1:30 p.m.
Swift had accused 55-year-old former radio DJ David Mueller of groping her at a concert in 2013 when she claimed he reached up her skirt and grabbed her buttock in public. "You can ask me a million questions". She says Mueller yet to pay her. "I never have said anything different".
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.

Her victory might not have made her any money, but it inspired many to speak up against sexual assault. In the weekend following the trial, the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) reported a 35 percent increase for its national hotline.
While Swift has yet to address the criticism, her inclusion on the cover has resulted in a massive online culture war.

Ermold also said that his campaign will not only focus on the LGBT rights but will also give prominence to other issues. Retired Morehead instructor Joe Sartor said the community is pretty divided over Davis, so he thinks Ermold has a shot.
Talking about how she felt while she testified at the trial, she said, "This man hadn't considered any formalities when he assaulted me, and his lawyer didn't hold back on my mom-why should I be polite?" I spoke to Kesha on the phone and it really helped to talk to someone who had been through the demoralizing court process.
But before the music, the performances and the subsequent lyrical analyses, there was something else happening in Taylor Swift's life this over the course of the year 2017. There was an audible gasp in the courtroom when I was named as the defendant. The group, which includes Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan and many others who exist outside of the celebrity world, account for the women who have come forward in recent months to boldly identify the men who have sexually assaulted them, lewdly propositioned them or extorted them, typically in the workplace.
