The Silence Breakers Are TIME’s 2017 Person of the Year
Time Magazine’s 2017 Person of the Year isn’t one person, it’s a movement.
The magazine is recognizing ‘The Silence Breakers’ who came forward to give a voice about sexual abuse and harassment.
The cover features actress Ashley Judd, who one of the first women to speak out about Harvey Weinstien.
Time also interviewed singer Taylor Swift, the creator of #MeToo and the former Uber engineer who detailed rampant sexism in a blog post that led to Uber’s C.E.O. resigning.
Time’s story says, “These silence breakers have started a revolution of refusal, gathering strength by the day, and in the past two months alone, their collective anger has spurred immediate and shocking results: nearly every day, CEOs have been fired, moguls toppled, icons disgraced. In some cases, criminal charges have been brought.”
President Donald Trump was the runner-up for Person of the Year.
He took to honor last year.
Other runner ups include Chinese President Xi Jinping, special investigator Robert Muller and embattled quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
