If groping sounds innocent enough, how does sexual assault grab you?
Swift's court case and a campaign against 'upskirting' suggest the troubles women face, writes Sophie Donaldson
Taylor Swift, pop megastar and Victoria's Secret 'squad' mobiliser, is currently embroiled in a court battle in Denver with radio DJ David Mueller.
He had sued her for $3m in damages, saying Swift's claim that he placed his hand under her skirt and grabbed her buttocks at a backstage meet-and-greet led to his dismissal from radio station KYGO.
Swift countersued (for a token $1), alleging sexual assault in a case that intends to send the message that no woman should have to keep quiet about being touched inappropriately.
