Responding to Time’s questions, Taylor was open about her disgust and frustration during the trial process. “I was angry,” she said of the moment she took the stand. “In that moment, I decided to forego any courtroom formalities and just answer the questions the way it happened. 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?” She said that she was told afterwards that her testimony was the most times the word “ass” had been used in a Colorado court.

When asked about why she came forward about the incident, Taylor said that she was concerned that David’s actions weren’t just an isolated incident. “I figured that if he would be brazen enough to assault me under these risky circumstances and high stakes, imagine what he might do to a vulnerable, young artist if given the chance,” she told TIME.

She also offered some powerful advice to other victims who get flack for taking time to come forward. “My advice is that you not blame yourself and do not accept the blame others will try to place on you,” she said. “You should not be blamed for waiting 15 minutes or 15 days or 15 years to report sexual assault or harassment, or for the outcome of what happens to a person after he or she makes the choice to sexually harass or assault you.”

Other people included in TIME’s Person of the Year profile included Ashley Judd and Rose McGowan, who went public with their allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein, and Selma Blair, who spoke out against director James Toback.
