The Joyful Heart Foundation was launched by former Law & Order; Special Victims Unit television star Mariska Hargitay in 2004 with the aim of alleviating the isolation felt by domestic abuse and sexual assault victims.

The radio DJ found guilty of sexually assaulting Taylor Swift says he is considering plastic surgery to improve his job prospects.

Mueller was sacked from his job at country radio station KYGO-FM after Swift complained about his unwanted groping of her behind at a meet-and-greet in 2013. "My hope is to help those whose voices should also be heard".

Thanks to the success of her global tour, Taylor Swift arrived in 2016 in the lead in the annual ranking of the celebrities of the richest established by Forbes magazine, with some $ 170 million earned between June 2015 and June 2016. She said she would donate to organisations that help sexual assault victims defend themselves.

Swift said she wanted to use her experience to demonstrate to other women that they could fight back against sex abuse, even if not in criminal court and even if they are not global pop superstars.

Inspired by her day job, Hargitay said she founded the organization with a mission to transform society's response to survivors.

"I hope that Taylor's very public experience - and her decision to speak out - not only helps empower other victims to speak up and take action, but offers them solidarity", Hargitay said, adding that she was "honoured by her dedication and commitment to these issues".

The president of the foundation, Maile Zambuto, she thanked the singer for 27 years for his "generous investment" and estimated that it had sent "a powerful message to the victims of the whole world: you count". What happens to you matters.
